Born in Ukraine, Artem comes from a family line of ballroom dancers. As Artem likes to say, “It’s in my blood.” Growing up in the dance world, it was only a matter of time before Artem caught the “dance bug.” Learning his first dances at age five, he quickly excelled in International Latin and International Standard styles.
After moving to the United States in 2005, Artem continued his amateur dancing and earned numerous titles as a junior competitor throughout Florida state.
Upon graduating high school, Artem began attending college, but knew something was missing and decided to return to the dance floor. He is now happy to share his passion of ballroom dancing with each person he teaches and is currently competing professionally in American Rhythm.
