Iryna was Disco Dance Champion in her teen years growing up in Ukraine. When she moved to the U.S., she started to venture into the world of Ballroom Dance and in just a few years gained the title of United States American Rhythm Finalist with her husband, Aaron DeSoto. In fact, it was Aaron who taught her how to do ballroom.
Iryna enjoys the fast dances like Cha Cha, Swing, and Mambo and it’s quite obvious as she is a spitfire on the floor! You can see her Disco Dance experience come out in those dances, especially during her quick turns and crazy tricks. When dancing, you can often catch Iryna lip-syncing the songs as she truly loves any music that makes her move.
When it comes to teaching, Iryna’s passion overflows and she desires to share that passion with every single student. She loves to push her students to achieve the most they can because she believes dance improves everyone’s lives.
