Dance with Anastassia Abramenko
Owner Anastassia Abramenko has a longstanding ballroom dance career as a professional dance instructor and choreographer with over 15 years experience. As a teacher, she embraces the mental, physical, and spiritual qualities of ballroom dancing. It's a source of inspiration for her and influences her daily life. This mentality ultimately led her to establish her own Central Florida ballroom dance studio - Anastassia Ballroom & Dance - in 2014.
Anastassia started her dance training at a ballroom dance academy in Kaliningrad, Russia. Her passion and love for dancing grew from the early age of 6. Between 1992 through 1999, she competed successfully and won many prizes during international ballroom dancesport championships in the following countries: Russia, Denmark, Germany, Poland, France, Czech Republic, and Italy. In 1999, she moved to the United States and began her teaching and instructing career. From 1999-2010, Anastassia won several competitions in Florida as a dancesport professional and PRO-AM dance instructor.
