I have been dancing since the tender age of six. It started with Ballroom dancing in my native Russia, where I spent 11 years competing. After retiring from competitive Ballroom I never quit dancing and continued as a ballroom and social dance instructor teaching couples Salsa, Bachata, Waltz, Foxtrot and many more formats. My need to understand different dance cultures led me through various forms of dance: modern, contemporary, jazz, ballet, Argentine Tango, African tribal dance, hip-hop, and Flamenco. In 2003 I discovered Belly dancing as a part of pregnancy and birth preparation class. It become my passion. I pursued it several years before becoming an instructor and have been teaching different belly-dance formats including ShimmyFit since 2008.
