Kristína (Kika) Uhrínová

Her first steps as a child were also her first dance steps in the children folk group Ďumbier, in Liptovský Mikuláš. Being in the group she had the opportunity to attend various performances and festivals in Slovakia (the famous folk festival Východná, the folk festival pod Poľanou – Detva) and abroad.
During her studies at grammar school she danced at FS Váh, which has achieved a significant reputation on the folk scene thanks to its professional approach. Dancing at FS Váh provided her opportunities to attend both domestic and international festivals. Besides folk dancing she has also completed her second degree in dance at the Private Elementary School of Arts Liptovský Hrádok.
While dancing at FS Váh she also worked as a dance instructor at DFS Ďumbier. In 2013-2013 she led courses on folk dance and singing at the Elementary School ZŠ Tupolevova in Petržalka. For the second school year (2012/2013, 2013/2014) she has been leading courses on movement and dance training for children at the elledanse School of Dance. Besides working at elledanse, she studies at the Faculty of Medicine of Comenius University in Bratislava and dances at FS Technik.
She transmits her love for dance to children throughout the whole year and during various summer schools and camps.
