Wow,.. Klub CD (in a very traditional cultural venue of Ljubljana – Cankarjev dom) is the best place for salsa parties. The atmosphere is absolutely phenomenal and just the fact the party was sold out days before, gives you an approximate feeling on how much people like and want to attend it. The welcome drink and champaigne at midnight made it a bit more personal and holidaylike, while the show program gave a special touch to it.
We (performers) were all a bit dissapointed due to some technical problems with some of our shows (music went it’s own way from time to time) but overall all performers had fun on stage.
I have to dedicate this article to a new performance of Dulce Locura, which was this time performed only as a duo. Maja and me wanted to bring something new and fresh on Slovene salsa scene.. and we wanted to show more than 1-2-3, 5-6-7 count dancing. We did this lyrical stuff, which was meant to fit in the category of latin jazz. So we added some bachata, tango and chacha moves to jazz and contemporary feeling. The song we chose is very strong itself, so our dancing wanted to show a story as well (that’s why it’s lyrical 🙂 ).
The story is not complicated, but I think it relates to all of us. Each and every one of us carries some shadows (or is followed by them), which have different effects on our lives. Some go by very unnoticed, some complicate our lives to an extrem, but with some we just learn to get by and live with. So this is our life story and a message, harmony makes everything so much easier. We strongly hope the show will touch even more people and we promise to keep up with our work, to grow even further and bring new stories, styles and experiences on the stage. We love this art and luckily we are starting to understand it. 🙂
Happy New Year to all faithful readers!! This show is dedicated to you, we did it with great passion and determination.
We’ll be seeing you in January 2009. Lots of warm wishes, hugs and kisses to all!

You probably remember, I was showing off with those Salsa Christmas Party flyers with Dulce Locura, a few weeks ago. Yesterday, we performed three routines on that party (organized by Bu-Ba) in Festivalna dvorana … Yes, that was something … The biggest challenge wasn’t dancing though, it was changing costumes backstage!! 🙂
We already knew the venue will be great and both DJs (DJ Principe and DJ Panchito) will play good music, but you never know what the show program will bring, now do you 😉 Dulce Locura brought some different styles of dancing this time and to a big surprise of all – we introduced 3 new members: Anja, Nika and Luka. Yes, we have a male member now! And he choreographed most of the two group routines we did. So congratulations to Luka! Not to mention all the tricks he did in salsa routine 😉
Here are the clips of our performances and the one from crazy swing guys. Unfortunately I don’t have the clips of another great salsa performance by sexy ladies group Meneo. If anyone has the clips don’t hesitate and share them with us! 🙂
I hope you all enjoyed yesterday. We had a great time performing for all the participants. Now let us wish you a great New Year Eve’s celebration! All the best in the next year, dance as much as you can or will and do come and see our shows again!

Phew… I just got home from a multiple-hour training with Dulce Locura. The adrenalin level is still skyrocketing, so I imagine I won’t be able to sleep for another couple of hours. 😦 I’m sure everybody knows this feeling, working out before sleep and then being unable to actually fall asleep? Well, it was one hell of a training today. We worked our buts off! And the hardest thing was keeping the motivation level high… or at least on a reasonable level. But it’s like any job – we have deadlines to catch, so we can’t rest even if we’re dying too 😉 I’m proud of my girls though. They learned and worked like little ants … little loud ants!! And after three hours Maja and me finally let them go out and party. 🙂 If you want to see what in the world we were working so hard for, come and see us in Festivalna dvorana on Wednesday, 26th of December on a Salsa Christmas Party. There will be some other performances as well and, among all, crazy salsa dancing late into the night! C ya!!
