Nika Kljun

Daughter of two Slovenian faces in the entertainment industry Janja Pusl and Zoran Kljun, 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, 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 Slovenian Ambassador of Dance, 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. Nika now lives in Los Angeles. She has worked on major projects such as Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-yo, Pitbull, T-Pain, One Direction, Cher Lloyd, the Britney Spears tribute on MTV Video Music Awards, Jessica Sanchez, Donna Summer, Kaya Jones, Gina Katon, Matt Pokora, Herb Alpred, Macy's Glamorama fashion tour, Monsters of Hip Hop, Billboard Music Awards, Young Hollywood Awards, NRJ music awards, X-Factor USA, UK & France, America's Got Talent, The Voice, Move Live on Tour and was just recently, for the year of 2015, a part of Justin Bieber's dancing team. As a choreographer or assistant, she worked on projects such as So You Think You Can Dance in the USA, Ukraine & Portugal, Move Live on Tour with Derek & Julianne Hough, Dancing with the Stars, La Banda, AGT, Kellogg's summer campaign, Kaya Jones, Lena Katina, Sonny FP, Blake McGrath, Victoria Bech and Monsters of Hip Hop show to name a few. 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 31 countries around the world, from Europe, Middle East, North and South America to Asia.
