We are Tjaša Vulič and Luca Bussoletti, DanceSport athletes with over 20 years of competitive career in Standard and Latin American dances. Our passion for dance was awarded with the most prestigious title as we became two-time world professional 10 dance champions (2010-2012).
We became also world vice-champions in show dance in the professional division and eight-time Slovenian nation champions in standard dances. Apart from that, we won numerous competitions throughout Europe, in the US, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Philippines… Together, we have discovered the world and competed against world’s top-ranking dancers. In 2013, we retired from competitive dancing and from then on have been devoting our heart and soul to other dance projects.
We have more than 15 years of teaching experience and our dance couples have been achieving finals in major international competitions and world championships. We are also choreographers of show programmes, co-authors of the official technique books for Standard and Latin dances used by the World Dance Sport Federation, WDSF-licensed adjudicators, lecturers at congresses held for adjudicators and dance teachers all over the world, and organisers of various dance and gala events.
