Ivan Krslovic

Before Ivan Krslovic forayed into the dance world, Ivan was passionately into acting. In fact, just after completing high school, he joined various acting workshops.

Later he enrolled in the Film and Television Studio International in Melbourne and Beverly Hills Playhouse in LA to hone his skills.

Ivan Krslovic is the first Aussie male to join ImmaBEAST- one of the most famous hip-hop companies in the world. At the age of 26, he received a diploma in elite dance and performance from Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance- one of the most popular dance school in North Melbourne.

Hip hop was something I sort of fell into. The timing wasn’t great, as 25 is considered ancient for a dancer starting out, but I’ve always loved a challenge, so I decided to give it a serious shot. I saw a chance to combine my love of acting with my passion for dance and, at my age, I didn’t have any time to waste. I knew that to be the best, I had to train with the best.

Q How did you move from acting into dancing? Was there a particular encounter?
A My best mate had a dream to be a backup dancer for Justin Timberlake, so he started taking dance class. He knew I was doing acting and he just needed that moral support to go into a hip hop class … he being that little bit older. I thought “yeah whatever”, I was already in the arts acting so I agreed to go. After we went to that first class he never went again… but I loved it!

So I took one or two classes for a year. Then one of the teachers told me that if I loved it and wanted to take it more seriously I needed to do more hours and broaden my range as a dancer. So I finished my full time acting course on a Friday and the next day I started full time dance training at Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance.

Everyone thought it was ridiculous me starting dancing, obviously starting late at 25 years old. They said I was throwing my money away and I hadn’t much support for a while. But I had to came to that audition with my own routine and got in. I had to find my feet – literally! – at the start. I could tell people thought I wasn’t going to last … I got that vibe. Some people were supportive just because of my attitude and my energy in the class, plus I’ve done a bit of motivational speaking and stuff like that so I’d like to think I’ve always been a positive influence on people.
Q So you got qualified and learned other styles?
A I did. If someone could have filmed me in my first few months at ballet, jazz and other stuff I think it would be a good comedy show. I knew it would all help me in the end though, so I just battled on and got through it.
Q When did the switch from acting to dancing happen?
A Previously, I had completed study at Melbourne’s Film & Television Studio International and even completed a few courses at the prestigious Beverly Hills Playhouse in LA. I knew I wanted to combine the arts, acting and dancing altogether but then I competed in the Wildebeest for the first time, and decided that dance was what I wanted to focus on. I had never done anything like that before!
Q So tell us a little bit about the ImmaBEAST comp?
A The comp was started by two really respected and experienced dancers – Janelle Ginestra and William ‘Wildebeest’ Adams. The whole ImmaBEAST experience is pretty hectic! You start classes at 9 and might finish 7pm. It’s non-stop dance classes and they bring the best of the best and it’s 800-1000 dancers in one room so everyone there is really hungry to be noticed. A lot of people coming there are also there to audition at the end for the ImmaBEAST Dance Company. The first year I went was really just to up-skill because I knew I wasn’t ready for the company. People go just to be around the best and obviously pick up stuff, hanging around a few people who are better than you. It’s just about being around the best and just levelling-up with any chance you get.
Q So in terms of acting what have you done in Australia?
A I’ve worked off and on over the years with acting. I had a guest role on Neighbours as a stripper call Hugh Brennan. It was a decent part and I was on the lot for two weeks choreographing and just working with the directors, so it was a good foot in the door.
Q What has been the biggest challenge for you to break into the dance industry?
A Well I am just above 6’6” in height. To be honest it’s probably my height, as much as I think it’s an advantage it’s also a disadvantage because obviously for dancing you are expected to be the opposite. Unless you’re really strong you have to be in the middle. When dancing or acting opposite a partner, it can look ridiculous if you are too tall. So I have really worked hard to make my height less of a problem.
Q How do you manage being a tall dancer?
A Most people think I look like a footy player, so it’s a bit of a shock when they find out I’m a dancer. I do a lot of hard work. My size means I’ve had to work incredibly hard at flexibility, agility and just looking lighter on my feet. It’s been tough, but I like pushing boundaries – and the hard work makes the success even sweeter! If I look back at old videos when I first started I realised I was pretty sour-faced. But I needed to get over that hill and once I started seeing progress I realised it was okay and only going to get better. I like to think I took a potential weakness and have turned it into a strength.
Q You have agents for both acting and dancing now – what is your end goal?
A My first big milestone would be to get a lead role in a dance film – like Channing Tatum did in the first Step Up movie! Of course I have other goals, but to be a lead in a dance film that is also a drama would be awesome.
