Vlad Filin – Dance Instructor

Vlad has been in the world of ballroom dancing since the age of 6 years old.  He started teaching in 2016 and joined the Fred Astaire Dutchess team in 2023.  His main focus is to teach students to “feel the dance, to pass it through every cell of the body while enjoying the process and improving themselves”.  He does all of this with a fun and individual approach!  Vlad’s favorite dance is paso doble in which “your body copies the movements of the matador and your lady your muleta.  Together you depict this fight in the form of a dance, feeling and conveying this incredible atmosphere!”
