About Valéria Stašková

Valeria started dancing at the age of six in a children’s dance group in her hometown of Prešov, in Slovakia.

As a child, she was successful in her dance group and attracted attention of professionals - so her dance teachers recommended that she study dance at a professional dance school in Slovakia.

Aged 10 Valéria was accepted ainto the Eva Jaczová Dance Conservatory in Bratislava, where she is currently studying in her eighth year. She decided to become a professional classical dancer, but she also studies the techniques of modern dance and character dance. While studying she has performed in numerous ballet performances with the Slovak National Theatre, such as: The Nutcracker, La Bayadera, A Mysterious Key, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake. She has represented her school at the school concerts in Bratislava and performed at concerts and projects abroad in Brno (Czech Republic), Fukuoka (Japan), and also in Vienna (Austria).
Valéria has also joined summer workshops at the Balletschule Theater Basel in Switzerland and Danza Mea Summer School in Bratislava.

During her studies Valéria caught the attention of film producers with her expression and sense of showing character, and she went on to land the role of one of the main characters in a feature-length film.
