Owner, Ballroom Dance Instructor, and Dancer in Leesburg, Florida
Owner, Professional Ballroom Dancer and Dance Instructor at Anastassia Ballroom & Dance, northwest of Orlando, Florida.
I started my training at a ballroom dance academy in Kaliningrad, Russia. Between 1992 through 1999 I won many prizes at international ballroom championships in the following countries: Russia, Denmark, Germany, Poland, France, Czech Republic, Italy. In 1999 I received an opportunity to enter one of the prestigious competitions in the United States, called 'United States Dance Championships' (USDC) - open to competitors from around the world. After experiencing all the enthusiasm associated with ballroom dancing, my family decided to move to the United States.
I began my USA instructing career with Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Jax First Coast and later at studios in other states. I won several competitions in Florida from 1999-2001. In 2014, I opened my own dance studio - Anastassia Ballroom & Dance. The studio serves Central Florida residents.
Currently I teach and compete in International Latin and Ballroom styles, along with American Rhythm and Smooth styles nationally throughout the United States.
I hope to inspire others through ballroom dancing.
