Evgeniy, Dance Director/Studio Owner

Humble is a perfect word to describe Evgeniy. Though he is one of the most decorated dancers in our region, you will never imagine the types of titles he has acquired. One of them being part of the World’s Top Ten Dancers, which he achieved through the biggest dance competition and “The World’s First and Foremost Festival of Dancing”―Blackpool Dance Festival. He was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, and has studied many different styles of dance since the early age of 5. He ended up focusing on ballroom dancing and has become a two-time International Latin champion of his homeland. Looking for an opportunity to share his talents to the U.S., he moved to the country in January 2013 and began his official teaching career with Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios. While in the U.S., he has entered the Latin finals of The United States Dance Championships―America’s largest ballroom competition.

It is clear that he not only has a passion for dance, but shows true talent which is evident by his accomplishments. He is now
excited to be the proud co-owner with his wife, Jackie of the 8th and newest location in Illinois, Fred Astaire Dance Studios of St. Charles.
