Viktor Konvalinka

Co-founder, Artistic Director, choeographer, dancer

After graduating from the Prague Dance Conservatory in 2004, Viktor joined the Czech National Ballet, where he was appointed soloist in 2006. He has performed as a soloist in classical repertoire, modern ballets and contemporary choreography. During his time here, Viktor performed many works by renowned choreographers such as Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Mats Ek, Jiri Pokorny, Jacobo Godani, Youri Vamos, Petr Zuska, Jan Kodet and many more. In 2009 Viktor co-founded his own project-based dance company called Dekkadancers, in which he was then able to explore his own ideas through dance and choreography. In 2015, Viktor won the category “best male dancer” of the 23rd edition of Thalia Awards in Czech Republic for his outstanding solo in Ohad Naharin’s ‘Decadance’ staged by Czech National Ballet. All together a total of 24 artists were nominated in different categories. Viktor then joined Norrdans in August 2015 where he worked with many choreographers such as Mats Ek, Mari Carassco, Jo Strømgren, Fernando Melo, Roy Assaf, Tina Tarpgaard, Martin Forsberg, Kartin Hall and Simone Grøtte. Even after leaving the Czech Republic, Viktor continued being a part of Dekkadancers when he could, going back to choreograph on his time off. In 2019 he left Norrdans to start a life of freelancing with the support of Dansalliansen in Sweden. His freelance journey has brought him back to work with Vaclav Kunes 420 People and Jana Burkiewiczova. He has also returned to work with Dekkadancers along with finding his other passions in the world.
