Angelina Lesniak & Richard Dózsa
We met on the romantic “Traumschiff” (MV Deutschland) in 2012. From the very beginning we felt a special connection to each other. What we shared in professional and personal experiences inspired us to put artistic visions together with the dream of accomplishing something special to share with the audience. The beginning of this dream was difficult due to the 1200 kilometers between us but with the determination and discipline that dancers have, after half a year we managed to bridge our lives together and pursue our artistic vision!
You can feel how we perfectly complement each other on the dance floor producing a magical experience.
We have developed a unique style, in which the Latin American fire strikes the clear, classical dance lines.
Our goal is to share our passion for dancing, our positive energy and joie de vivre. We wish you much fun on our site and hope that you will be both personally as well as artistically persuaded of our skills and experience.
Make your next special occasion entertainment with Angelina & Richard to make it memorable!
