Our “GUEST BLOG” series continues and we excitedly introduce you to world renowned dance choreographer/teacher, Nika Kljun.
Nika tells us a little more about herself:
My name is Nika Kljun. I am a professional dancer and choreographer from Slovenia living in Los Angeles. I would say I am @# years old but I don’t believe in age. You are as young as you feel.
A normal week in my life may includes 4 or 5 flights. Being in Europe, the US, and Asia in the same week is pretty normal for me especially during the summer time. I love meeting new people, having the opportunity to submerge in different cultures, and I love teaching. But my absolute favorite is seeing the passion for dance across the world. Seeing a person eyes light up so full of joy, so full of life. Dance is so powerful. It is a healer. It is as if time stopes just for a second, you forget about everything in the world, and you are just there in the moment, feeling the song go through every cell and every muscle in your body. And you are infinite.
Positive Life: “Live In The Moment” by Nika Kljun
I am a sensitive person when it comes to energy. Just like music can make me feel different emotions and give me different energy and motivation, so do the people who I surround myself with. I want to feel comfortable- to be myself. 100% myself. Every part of me is completely exposed and free when I am around the people I love. The same thing happens when I teach dance. I am exposed, I am me. I want to make the people in my class, no matter how old or how much experience they have, feel happy. I want them to feel the joy I feel when the music is on. I always end up leaving class completely whipped and at the same time so recharged and ready for more. Energy is contagious.
I like to take a little time for myself now and then. For my loved ones, my family, and those closest in my life. It’s important for my well being to make time, no matter how busy I am. Make time for the things you love!
Treat people with kindness. We all come from different walks of life. We all have a different path. All we can do is support each other, show compassion for one another, and grow together.
I see it all the time. Pick a country in the world. It doesn’t matter which one. There is always a dancer who brings me to tears with their story of what it took for them to come to a dance class. To my dance class. Whether monetary, distance, or anything else going on in their life that would prevent them from attending- the work they put in so they can be there and learn. It makes me want to give them everything I have. The energy they bring with them, reminds me that we are never too busy, we are never too tired, and you can truly do anything. Returning home, I am always inspired and motivated after being surrounded with so much light, joy, and passion. I feel unstoppable and ready to share that with the people around me.
I am Nika.
