I started dancing at the age of seven in Russia. I immediately fell in love with the world of DanceSport, a competitive style of ballroom dancing, and started participating and placing in major competitions.
After moving to the US in 2002, I continued training and competing in International Latin, as well as pursuing American style. I partnered up with Gordon Kwan in 2005, and we competed in American Rhythm all across the nation, becoming finalists in some of the most prestigious championships. Eventually we got married and opened a dance studio in Westlake, OH. Currently, myself and Gordon live in Westlake, coaching and competing Pro-Am with our dedicated students. We have three sons, who share their parents' passion for dancing.
My boundless enthusiasm inspires others to learn dance, as well as spread the joy and health benefits from this activity to others.
