Founder

<-- back
My background comes from Russian classical ballet, choreography and folk dance. As a teenager I switched to Ten Dance Ballroom and performed in various competitions up to a Gold level. At fifteen my coaches gave me full responsibility to look after their studio in Moscow while they had to perform internationally for a week. At that age I proved to be mature enough to handle the full scope of both managerial and teaching duties.
While obtaining my formal degree in Education, I headed a dance department within a multi-discipline musical school, taught dance classes, organized performances, and was responsible for all marketing and managerial duties. I continued dancing recreationally as a part of an adult ensemble. As a final stage in my career I worked as an adjudicator at competitions and various talent shows.

After I moved to Canada in 2006 my presence in dance has featured a different perspective. I enrolled my child in a variety of dance classes, observed their lessons, year-end shows and local competitions. In 2012, I established Inlet Dance Academy to teach Ballroom and Latin dance to my children and their friends. I continued with my studies and obtained Master degree in Education from SFU in 2015 as well as took selected courses in multimedia and design at UBC. I obrainted my Zumba® fitness license in 2013 and am now offering ZumbaKids® classes. In my instruction choices I am guided by established practices, set up clear objectives, use a wide range of evaluations while allowing my true teaching talent to challenge the creative!
