Irina Fedosova has been dancing since age five. She was born in Russia and emigrated to New York in her early twenties. She met her partner, Strahinja Lackovic, while they were teaching at the same studio. In 2015, the pair moved down to Naples to pursue teaching positions at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Naples. Due to their success as instructors, they quickly moved up the ranks and, in May 2016, purchased the studio and have been growing it ever since. Irina is one of the top female instructors in the region.
