Claudiu and Alexandra


Alexandra was introduced to the salsa world in 2006 and since then started developing a strong connection to this music and dance, in all its dimensions. She takes inspiration from everything and everyone and continues to grow as a dancer. For many years now she has been travelling all over Europe to rock the dance floors of festivals. Alexandra is most known for her social dancing, musicality and body movement skills.

Claudiu had his first contact with salsa in the year 2009. In 2010 he started studying along side Alexandra Ilie and Melodia Project in which he would continue to form as a dancer, performer and later on as a teacher. In time he has kept the desire to evolve and gather knowledge from all the different styles and influences of salsa as well as different teachers/role models. Now his dancing can be seen to incorporate mambo, pachanga, and various afro-cuban influences with a focus on body movement and musicality.

The two have been sharing the stage and teaching together as part of Melodia Project team, based in Bucharest, since 2011. Their passion for salsa can be easily seen in their performances, classes, as well as on the dance floor. Look for them and you'll see for yourself!
