Working with Competitive Ballroom Dancers

Since Maja started Latin dancing herself it always has been her interest to explore how these different dance forms can affect each other.

Since then she is giving courses and classes for different institutions from Dancesport, such as:

  • Dance Sport School, Vienna
  • TSK Juventus, Vienna
  • TSK Schwarz-Weiß, Vienna
