NIKA KLJUN

Jazz Funk

Daughter of two Slovenian faces in the entertainment industry, Nika was destined to stardom. Her passion for dance and love for the stage began at her parents' dance school, Bolero. There, she nurtured her talent and followed in her family's footsteps competing as an undefeated champion and dancing professionally since the age of three. She studied in jazz, tap, Latin, ballroom and funk, but her heart truly lies in the hip hop culture. She wanted to share her passion for hip hop and became a mentor for the Bolero dancers, encouraging them to follow their dreams while bringing them to multiple wins all over Europe.

Although she is a superstar and Ambassador of Dance in Slovenia, winning gold as a soloist at the world championships and being a Nike global spokesperson is what really put her on the world map. Taking over Europe as a professional dancer and choreographer sparked a bigger dream. She is the proof that anything is possible.

Nika now lives in Los Angeles. She has worked on major projects such as BeyonceJennifer LopezNe-Yo, PitbullT-PainOne Direction, Fifth Harmony, Cher Lloyd, Jessica Sanchez, Donna SummerKaya Jones, Gina Katon, Matt Pokora, Herb Alpert, Macy’s fashion tour, Monsters of hip hopNRJ music awardsX-Factor UK & FranceAmerica’s Got TalentBillboard Music Awards, and the Britney Spears tribute on the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She is choreographing for a former Pussycat Dolls singer Kaya Jones (Oscars 2013 night out, Asian tour) and choreographed & danced for Blake McGrath. She also worked as a choreographer for superstar Lena Katina from the Russian group T.A.T.U. She was a resident dancer on X Factor USA and she co-choreographed a final opening number for the professionals with Kevin Maher on Dancing with the Stars. Lately she has worked under the world famous “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers Napoleon & Tabitha D’umo (Nappytabs), also acting as one of the choreographers in the the Monsters of Hip Hop show alongside Tony Testa, Jaquel Knight, Luther Brown, Nick DeMoura and Tucker Barkley.  Nika recently also assisted Nappytabs on So You Think You Can Dance. The past two summers Nika toured with Macy’s Glamorama fashion show alongside Cirque De Soleil, Sheryl Crow & Backstreet Boys.

Her passion and heart for the art of dance and performing electrifies all students in her classes and workshops internationally to adequately prepare them for the stage. Nika already taught in more than 15 countries around the world, teaching on her own 2 workshop tours in Asia (Dance 2xs tour) and South America. She is known for bringing the heat and magic into class so don’t miss this experience!
