Vlado Oláh aka Vlado “el Corazon” owns his own studio, Dance in the Heart, in Prague. He is hardworking and not ashamed of his Roma identity, which he never conceals. His beginnings were far from easy. Some people doubted him, some wanted to discredit him and he had to support his dancing school himself with no guarantee of success. Roma identity is sometimes denied and sometimes better not mentioned at all, but within the Salsa community of Prague, people can be who they really are.
