Oleksandra was born in Lviv, Ukraine in a family of dancers. Since her grandmother is a professional ballet master and choreographer all kids in this family were supposed to dance. The first time Oleksandra stepped on the stage at three and a half years old as a part of the “Prominchik” kids dancing school. After Oleksandra’s family moved to Uzhgorod she became a part of exemplary children’s dance company “Dzhereltsya Karpat.” At the age of eleven Oleksandra moved again to the United States. After a short break she returned back to dancing. Hard work and diligent practice made her realize that ballroom dancing is the love of her life. IN 2015 Oleksandra became the World Pro/Am Dancesport Series. From the very first class Oleksandra knew that she wanted to be a dance teacher. With over 5 years of experience behind her, teaching kids of various ages as well as adults, she knows that seeing her students learning and improving is the best reward.
