ABOUT US

EXOTICA a.s.d. is a project born from the idea of two women, Valentina Domino e Tais Klochkova two professionals with a common goal – to awake the inner female conscience in every one of us.

hey had start to feel it with the first class of exotic pole dance. They fell in love with this style and later this became their world. They discovered this new side of themselves, until then unexpressed. They always knew to have it deep inside them.

The practice and the experience of years have led them to the awareness that something important was changing inside them.
The comprehension that exotic was transforming them not only on a physical level but also on the mental one. They had felt a drift of energy and a flow of emotions so intense to stimulate the desire to share this experience with other women!

So is that exact flow that has led them to choose water as the element of the first edition of EXOTICA CONVENTION, the water that wet the skin of all the partecipants of last edition.
This year the chosen element is the sun, symbol of female power and life.
