Anastassia Abramenko started her training at a ballroom dance academy in Kaliningrad, Russia in
1990. Between 1992 through 1999 she won many prizes during international ballroom
championships in the following countries: Russia, Denmark, Germany, Poland, France,
Czech Republic, Italy. In 1999 Anastassia had an opportunity to enter one of the prestigious
competitions in the United States, called 'United States Dance Championships', or USDC open to
competitors from around the world. After seeing all the enthusiasm associated with ballroom
dancing in the U.S. Anastassia and her family decided to move to the United States. Anastassia
moved to Jacksonville FL, where she began her instructing career first with Fred Astaire Dance
Studios and later at studios throughout the First Coast and other states of the United States.
From 1999-2001 Anastassia won several competitions in Florida. Everyone she has met
throughout her journey has been instantly drawn to her passion for dancing and teaching along
with her quality of dancing.

Now, she competes nationally throughout the United States with her students in the Professional-Amateur (PRO- AM) division, a division in which she has earned multiple awards and titles.
