Plesna izba Maribor's annual winter dance show production
Continuing our great collaboration with Maribor’s well know dance school & dance company Plesna Izba Maribor, I documented another annual winter show production of the most of their different classes - from small kids to jazz and modern/contemporary dancers!
Monja Lorenčič and Domen Žugelj, known also under their artistic name Moment, are two great, young and very talented dancers from Slovenia that needed some fresh pics for their portfolio - I was very honoured to work with them on a quick photo shoot last month and am sure will do this again, since all three of us had a great time :)
