Maria af Klintberg

I was born in 1974 in a family of strong tradition of folk music and
dances. I started working with my father at age of 7 as a clown alongside of him, in TV shows and performances. My big passion growing up was dancing and I studied many styles since a young age. After graduating from classic studies in gymnasium I pursued my dance dream and was enrolled as work-study at Movement research in NY. Returning to Stock- holm I was accepted to the choreography program at the University col- league of Dance wish I attended for two years. For the past 14 years I have been a core member of Teater Sláva performing ,teaching and di- recting with the group. For the past 12 years I have been on the Artistic council and for 7 years I have been Producing Artistic Director. I still per- form both with Sláva and my father, I have 2 children and a husband.
