Qualifications: Learned International Style Ballroom dancing in St. Petersburg, Russia from her mother (between the ages of 6-18). Moved to the US where she continued training in Ballroom dance for another 18 years, ballet for 8 years and yoga for 8 years. Certified Dance Examiner with Arthur Murray International Inc. United States dance champion for 12 consecutive years. A World Champion for 3 consecutive years.
Personal History: As a result of my dancing, I have always had a strong interest in fitness. I’ve worked with many other ways of staying in shape - from running to Pilates to yoga, also with personal trainers and home video fitness programs. For me, fitness is a way of life and I am always interested in seeing what is new. My husband and I love to teach and work out together. I also run a ballroom dress company. This gives me the opportunity to see beautiful bodies in beautiful dresses.
Workout Philosophy: How your body looks and works is such an integral part of your life. It’s not a trend - it’s a lifestyle choice.
