The girl on the other side of the screen..
I started teaching chair dance back in 2012, to enable women to express their femininity and to feel more self-confident.
In my dance style, I combine a wide range of dance knowledge I gained learning in Slovenia and abroad (jazz ballet, salsa, reggaeton, bachata).
And because I am a student of life, I am constantly educating myself and enriching dance with various useful exercises for strength, mobility, flexibility … Join me and grow with me ❤️.
Fun Facts About Me
I was always dancing… My kindergarten teacher trusted me to choreograph the final dance we had for our parents before we left for school. I was the leading dancer and my parents decided it was time to enroll me in a dance school.
I once had a hen, that I called Mickey and I was driving him around in a wheelbarrow…
The first dance that I learned in dance school was Lambada.
At the age of 9, me and my partner won 1st place in a national ballroom dancing competition.
At the age of 18, I started dancing again. I thought I have 4-6 more dancing years in front of me, but now, 20 years later, I think I’ll never stop.
I ran away in the middle of an entrance exam for the college of architecture because I didn’t feel confident enough (Needless to say, I wasn’t accepted).
I love animals, and I cry if I see one suffering. I was never allowed to have pets in the house, so I got myself a cat the moment I moved on my own (I found her in the parking lot in front of the apartment building I used to live in and it was love at first sight). Cats are crazy, loving, selfish, self-centered, careless and beautiful.
I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years (but I hate brussels sprouts).
I had to stop dancing at the age of 10 due to a knee operation. That was also the end of my ballroom career.
I lived and worked abroad for some time and people kept asking me if my name is spelled the same way as Princess Leia from Star Wars. No, it is spelled differently – Leja – but J is almost nowhere pronounced the same way as in Slovenian. So, I swapped the J with I to make it easier to pronounce it correctly and to remember it more easily. So, Leia P., just like the princess 😉
