Nastja began her career in ballet and modern dance when she was six years old. She has won many awards at competitions in both ballet and modern dance. After graduating from high school (Secondary Preschool Education School and Gymnasium Ljubljana – specializing in modern dance) she was chosen by the Italian choreographers Mauro Astolfi and Erika Silgoner to receive a scholarship for training with their dance ensembles (Spellbound Dance Company and Esklan).

After finishing this six-month course she successfully passed entrance exams at CODARTS – Rotterdam Dance Academy. Among 900 candidates from all over the world, she was admitted directly into the 3rd year of study.

She graduated in 2008. During her stay in the Netherlands, she worked with numerous choreographers such as Nacho Duato, Mauro Bigonzeti, Michele Pogliani, Neel Veerdorn, Jerome Meyer and Isabelle Chaffaud. In addition, she was a member of Scapino Ballet Rotterdam dance ensemble.
Nastja has presented some of her choreographic miniatures at various choreographers’ competitions. She worked as a choreographer in Classics and Tango at the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet of Ljubljana and collaborated with the Slovene National Theatre of Nova Gorica as movement director or choreographer on multiple occasions. In 2009 she founded MN Dance Company together with Michal Rynia. They call their dance style ‘Contemporary Fusion’.
