“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Mark Twain.


Val started dancing when he was 10 years old in his home country of Russia.  His first ballroom dance competition was in 1996 in which it took 4 years to become the champion in his region. In 2017, Val became a member of the Fred Astaire Doylestown Team. Together with his fellow dance instructors, Val has earned many World, National and Regional Top Studio awards at numerous competitions. To Val, it is a pleasure being a dance instructor at a place of many dance styles with respected and genius dancers. His favorite thing about dancing is expressing himself through movement and teaching others what he has learned.
