Marathon DJs

Great DJs and music is the most important of every event

DJ timetable - who's behind the decks right now ?

DJ Alejandro

Israel

DJ Andy

Austria

In Winter 2005/06 he stayed in the Dominican Republic for some weeks and fell in love with bachata music.

Back in Vienna, he started dancing salsa in 2009 and finally bachata in 2011. Since 2016 he dances sensual bachata and tried also kizomba. Because of his DJing experience from when he was still a student, starting with DJing again was only a small step. In 2018, he began working at socials in Vienna, and it didn’t take long for him to get booked at every important bachata social there.

He played his first international festival in Hungary back in 2019 and since 2021 he’s established to be the resident DJ of myDance Vienna in Vienna and Hungary. He is booked at every big bachata and latin festival in Vienna. From Vienna bachata experience to Latin am Fluss Festival and even Vienna Bachata Congress. He is also DJing at international festivals in Hungary and Czech Republic.

In 2024 he started also DJing in Asia. He is also working as bachata producer and does his own remixes. His musicality is a given, because of his many years of playing the violin and the guitar, and naturally makes him feel the mood on the dance floor and create a good flow for the dancers.

DJ Happy Feet

Czechia

DJ HappyFeet (Viktor Vašina, CZE). You can usually spot him barefoot at dance events.

As a dancer and teacher he's focused on connection, communication and fun between dancers.

As a Dj he wants to support these attributes with his music. He's gained most of his experience at mixed parties (salsa, bachata, kizomba) where the DJ needs to mix different styles of music but flow of the party is still top priority.

Instead of spectacular sound effects you can expect empathy with the dancefloor and your mood.

  • "If you like amazing music, great level of dancing and one of the most friendly atmosphere ever in the salsa world, you HAVE TO experience dance marathos by Zdenek. 🙂 At least once and then you can become addicted and be proud of it at the same time. Like myself 🙃🙂❤️ Sabina from sLOVENia"

  • "This was my first Fall Prague Salsa Marathon and I was most impressed. The high level of organisation, especially after all the uncertainty of the pandemic times in which we’re currently living, is very laudable! From the ticket purchase and transfer to the check-in and staff, welcome drink, outstanding meal offerings, friendly and professional kitchen staff, top-notch DJ lineup, quality level of balanced leads/follows, this Fall Prague Marathon was, quite simply, excellent!"

  • "This event is very special. What I like about the Prague marathons compared to others is the amazing combination of passionate dancers dancing to music played by passionate, experienced DJ's in a very quaint and comfortable venue, serving up very tasty buffet style meals and loads of snacks in between. I love how the snacks and meals are integrated completely with dancing area. The dancing is seemingly non-stop, starting from noon lunch/brunch until 6 AM in the morning. And perhaps the best is the general atmosphere of being relaxed and unpretentious, attended by friendly passionate dancers. Why I would recomend this event to my friends? Because it is a great way to dance a lot to really good music, to chill out with friends, and to get to know passionate salsa people much more closely than would be possible at larger, more formal salsa events."

Our Venues

Romantic Grotta

Havlíčkovy Sady, 12000 Prague 2, Czechia

The Grotta is the main attraction of the Havlicek Gardens and looks like a fairytale with its peculiar rock formations. The artificial cave looks unusual on the building and features the arcade promenade which is quite unique in Prague. The Grotta dates back to 1871 to 1888 when it was intricately built by Moritz Grobe, a millionaire. After renovation in 2011, the cave was opened for public.
