“Long time ago in a city far far away..”
A hyper-active and unstoppable child was born in Prague. Vojta has always loved all kinds of movement. During his childhood, yet unsure about what he was looking for, he’s been taking many different classes, such as martial-arts, yoga and theatre. When he finally saw poi spinning for the first time, he got totally mesmerized. He knew, that poi was what he was looking for the whole time. His life has changed, the passion was found. Slowly he started developing in dancing with other fire tools too, and tried to focus on exploring the circles with dance and body movement. He kept on practicing yoga and acrobacy as well. Music has always been his main source of inspiration and technique. Vojta has been playing drum kit since he was 7 years old. Indeed, drumming and object manipulation is connected. He never stopped drumming - in fact he has studied drums on a Jazz Conservatory, that enormously enriched his musical skills. There is no good dancer without music sensibility.
