Ola is the organizer of a great big kizomba festival in Poland: Warsaw Kizomba Festival. We got the invitation to go to this festival last year 2011 and visited Poland for the very first time. We had a blast and this year we had the chance to come back for the second time. So we kidnapped Ola for a short interview to learn how did she introduce kizomba in Poland and how did she get started in dancing.
Ola is a teacher, performer, choreographer, promoter and also a tour leader/guide. She is known to be one of the firsts salsa teachers in Poland (starting in 1998). In her visits as a tour guide to Portugal she discovered kizomba and fell in love with it and decided to bring it to Poland back in 2007. She has been promoting it since then on the Polish dance scene and now has produced the very successful and popular 3rd Warsaw Kizomba Festival.
She is also the co-founder of a Salsa and Kizomba School in Warsaw called Montuno Ayé , and the organizer of the very first kizomba congress in Poland.
Ola gained her dancing skills participating in many international salsa and kizomba festivals all around the world.
You can find information about the next Warsaw Kizomba Festival here and her Montuno Ayé Salsa and Kizomba School.
