Anastasia was born in Russia, Siberia and started dancing at the age of 5 years old. When she was 14 she fell in love with the style of Ballroom dancing inspired by watching dance competitions. She was trained in the International Latin and Standard program and particularly loved Latin. Upon moving to the United States she started pursuing a professional dance career and walked into Fred Astaire Dance Studio where she was hired right away. She is very excited to be a part of the company and looking forward to teaching our ambitious students!
