magda prichodko (pl)
Magda is a well known latin, jazz and modern jazz dancer, dance pedagog and choreographer.
In 2005 she accidentally dropped by a salsa club in Warsaw and fell in love with salsa at once. Six months later she joined Salsa Libre team, becoming a performer and later a salsa teacher. In January 2009 she was invitated to Norway to teach at Salsakompaniet, and moved to Oslo. She has been teaching and performing with such names as Jazzy Ruiz, Alexis Ruiz and Luis Vazquez. During those years she has established her position of leading female salsa artist in Scandinavia and one of the best in Europe. Her dancing, teaching and performing skills were recognized as well in Asia (Japan, India), where together with her dance partner she held workshops and performances.
From 2011 she worked as pedagog and choreographer for Bårdar Akademiet, and featured Norwegian TV shows “Stjernekamp” and “Alt er lov”.
Finally, in 2017 she moved to Trondheim to take position of head instructor for SalsaNor. She choreographs and coaches several dance teams in Norway (including Groovin Dance Company, Groovi’n’Heels and SalsaNor Student Teams). She travels internationally for dance workshops, dance choreography bootcamps and performances.
She is known for her unique expressive dance style, musicality and social dance skills. She enjoys dancing latin dances, swing as well as jazz and contact-improvisation. But social dancing remains always her greatest love, bringing joy of connection and improvisation on the dance floor. She is deeply missed in Oslo and we are thrilled to have her back at Oslo Caribbean Feeling this year.
