Eva was born and raised in the city of Prague, in the Czech Republic. She loved dancing even as a child when at the age of seven, her first dance training started with ballet and tap dance. She continued with her dance training through high school and afterwards, adding ballroom and belly dancing to her continuing ballet and tap dance experience, and finally discovering salsa and other Latin dances in her early twenties.
When she moved to Las Vegas in 2006, her passion for salsa ignited and she joined a salsa dance team, Sin City Salseros, and having found a dance partner, she began performing, competing, and finally teaching salsa classes at a studio. In 2008 she moved to Los Angeles where she joined another dance team and performed at various events, eventually partnering with Jos3 Hernandez from Salseros-LA to teach classes. More recently Eva has added West Coast Swing dancing to her repertoire, expanding her techniques to improve her overall dance skills.
From January 2010 to June 2011 Eva was a member of Charlene Rose Dance Company performing at many salsa events, clubs and venues. Currently she continues to perform and compete whilst partnering with Jos3 to teach classes, workshops and host weekly latin nights and various salsa events.
Eva has always followed her passion for music and dance, and she loves to share the joy and happiness that salsa dancing brings to her life with her students. Her favorite dance quote is: “Great dancers aren’t great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion” – Martha Graham.
She has a strong desire to always improve her dancing skills and techniques, and to educate herself on how to become a better dancer, a passion which acts an inspiration to her students to capture their love for dance and use it to improve their skills.
