Victoria – manager

Victoria, originally from Moldova, moved to New York United States in 2014 together with her husband Calin Panainte as he got invited to teach in the Fred Astaire Dance Studio New York East Side. Victoria fell in love with the Fred Astaire Company. as she saw how ballroom dancing enriches everyone’s lives. The ability of the FADS students of any age, any level, to perform in Dance Events inspired her to begin her ballroom training and she became a certified Ballroom dance instructor. In the challenging time of 2020, Calin and Victoria invested in the Chagrin Falls community and became the owners of the FADS Chagrin Falls and now welcome students of all ages, all levels, and all aspirations! They created a warm, family atmosphere for all their students, so everyone can reach their dance goals and desires in a welcoming, friendly and supportive atmosphere.
