Our team

Fun but a little crazy Salsa & Bachata teachers.

Kateřina Loginov

The founder of DanceDifferent and Dance4water Prague, winner of the National Cuban Salsa Championship, Katerina is our SuperWoman, head Cuban Salsa teacher, motivator, the one who cares the most about our feelings and will sacrifice hours cleaning up our mess. She is responsible for DanceDifferent being  a “like-a-boss” well organised school and not a hippie camp.

Yaros Loginov

Founder of DanceDifferent and winner of National Cuban Salsa Championship. Yaros is our head Salsa teacher, he loves great warm-ups, languages, remembering peoples names and going to bed earlier than he ever manages to.

Anna Košťálová

Anča is our Urban geek. She has a deep passion for frogs and Urban Kizomba, order of preference is uncertain. She is the fire-ball in DanceDifferent and carries a bucket-full of great ideas and energy to realize them.

Michal Šebesta

Our head Bachata teacher and winner of the National CR Bachata competition, Shabby is our most outspoken member of the team. Outspoken about all of the good and sometimes the ugly. Biggest heart and absolute animal, kind daddy and a “stuntman” too.

Pavlina Lasticova

Paja is our DanceDifferent smiley! It is impossible not to laugh next to her and it’s tremendously hard not to feel positive around her. She is the most out-door person in our team. If it was up to her, all of our classes would be held in the mountains all year long.

Vališ Stojčev

Vali is a dance teacher with the greatest dance passion, toughest work-ethic and spends the most time learning and developing his Urban Kiz style.
