Gabriela Jileva started dancing and competing in Ballroom at the age of 10 in her native Bulgaria where she won National Open International Standard title and represented her country to the World Cup Championships in Vienna, Austria. She has been with the Fred Astaire Organization for more than 10 years and has been awarded top teacher for the state of NJ. Gabriela has a bachelor’s degree in Finance.
Gaby’s favorite thing about the dance business is the people! She loves helping to develop their talents no matter what level of dancer they are. She says “seeing the excitement on their face, whether it’s because they just learned a box step or placed first in a National Competition is always a wonderful experience for a teacher to have. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it.”
