Dance Kingdom welcomes new Dancesport Coach Olga Shniakina
Dance Kingdom is proud to welcome a new member of the DK teaching team, Olga Shniakina.
Olga started Ballroom and Latin American dancing at five in Russia and fell in love with it because it was ‘cool’. The early years started with her mastering the basics before she got her first partner at the age of 8. As well as social dancing, she participated in festivals to get used to performing. At the age of 15 Olga started dancing with Alex, for whom she would compete around the world for the next 15 years. Her major achievements include 10th place in the European Championships, 3rd in the UK 10 Dance Championships, 3rd in the World Championship American show dance. Dancing is Olga’s passion, and she comes to Australia to continue to coach and continue her competitive career with DK pro Leighton Stevenson.
Olga brings to Dance Kingdom an enormous amount of experience both as a dancer and coach, and we welcome her to the team, and wish both her and Leighton Stevenson the best of luck with the new professional career as a dancing partnership.
