Maja Logar about foundation of Pandora – Art of Pole:
“At the beginning ballet, jazz ballet, modern and contemporary dance technique, and many other dance genres were the ones that formed my career as a dancer. I had danced many dance steps before I first span around the pole in 2009 and opened the door to a new and unfamiliar world that I was completely overcome by from the very beginning. The elegance of movement, gentility of moves, and athletic accuracy, which are required for pole dance, became my ideals and pushed me towards new challenges. The enthusiasm I felt as a beginner changed into professional passion, and discovering of new dimensions of movement and artistic expression.
Pole dance soon became a part of a regular programme at KD Center plesa (Cultural Society Dance Centre). Our first home, a studio with only four poles, became our experimental lab. Together we trained, developed, educated ourselves and improved. We moved boundaries and exceeded our expectations. Basic moves were replaced by complicated grips, basic routines by intrigue choreographies. Already after one year of leading workshops I longed for more, for an upgrade of what I have already learned. Tendency to eliminate stereotypes and to present pole dance as on stage art to a wider audience inspired a whole evening performance. Months of hard work followed. All pieces finally came together; our love to dance finally got an idea and a story- a soul that could be shared with others. A new dimension opened, perceiving the art of pole dance, and with it a way to introduce it to people around us. The one thing missing was a name.
And so our Pandora came to light. It is our family of dancers joined by the same passion. And that little studio is still a home to girls of all ages, joined by the love to dance. Being a founder and art leader of this family is more I could ever wish for. It is my mission, which I do devotedly, happily and with all my gratitude.”
