They say it’s gonna be a hot weekend! First summerish weekend of the year. And speaking from the heart – one can feel that. The temperatures rose to almost 30°C in a couple of days, without any prior warning, so it takes time to adjust. And I guess this weekend will be even hotter than hot. Why? Cause there’s another festival on the way. A smaller version of Salsa Power festival – one day event with a few classes and top party called Salsa Flower Power.
Slovenia will, for the first time host Fadi Hamdan alias Fadi Fusion from Spain and Vedran Marčeta from BiH.
I met both guys last year and I know, they’re great instructors and dancers. I can’t wait to learn from them and see their show. For a little appetizer, check this show from Fadi,… I think his body isolations are phenomenal and musicality just wonderful. I really enjoy this type of shows, so people, please continue with this kind of work 🙂
And I’m more than happy to announce Buba’s social dancers will perform on the party as well. We had a little something to do with that. So go guys – enjoy on that stage 🙂
Location: Buba and Klub CD
Time: 1pm for workshops, 9pm for party
Dress code: Spring touch (or summer I guess) 🙂

It kinda took me a while to publish some salsa news, but there are so many excuses for that. In my strong believe that late is still better than never I give you my review on Salsa flower Power now. 🙂 That Saturday was a total success. I didn’t attend classes (shame on me!) but I did hear they rose to all expectations. I did attend the party, however, and enjoyed like it was my first – in a good way that is. The new venue, Klub Cankarjevega doma, is just fabulous. The terrace and it’s view, the floor and ambient, everything meets the criteria of ‘What is top salsa place’. I was pleased to see so many foreign salseros, glad that they have finally figured out, that we do have good salsa in Ljubljana 😉 The party ended after 3 a.m. and continued in Tango bar on an after party. That one wasn’t empty either!
Every good salsa party needs show program and Salsa Flower Power introduced four great shows: Anke&Gil, Dado&Conny, Latina Bianca from Belgrade and a group of BU-BA students with their ever first performance. I think it’s only fair we give them a special place in this review. Congratulations to all! 🙂 🙂

Dado & Conny are a fun couple, which we had a pleasure to see in Slovenia before. They always bring special energy to their classes, make people laugh, their shows are getting better and better and we will see them again on 24th of May on Salsa Flower Power event. “Gold rush is coming to Ljubljana,” says Dado, who is answering the questions in the name of both (hm,… I wonder why) 😉
Up in Gradz the couple owns the “Conny & Dado” dance school, so they belong in the category of people, who managed to join business and pleasure – in salsa. 🙂
Irena: Hey guys! I must say I’m really excited about you two returning to Slovenia. How do you feel about that?
Dado: Well, we are always glad to come back to Slovenia, ‘cause especially I feel almost like home there. I can teach on my mother language and nobody understands anything! Just great 🙂
Just kidding! I can release my Bosnian jokes, and people seem to like them… so I never stop to fool around 🙂 Poor Conny 🙂
Irena: I saw your new show in Zagreb and must say it’s really spectacular! As I see you try to work most with musicality? Why do you think musicality is so important in salsa?
Dado: Without music, there would be no dance probably. That says everything. The fact is, that the two of us can’t do it any other way but to the music, ‘cause the music tells you how you should move to it. You “just” need to listen…
