Studio Owner | Dance Instructor
Jorja Jolly began discovering her passion for dance over twenty years ago as a “toddler tumbler.” As a young dancer, Jorja had her mother by her side to help guide her along the way. Over the years, she trained in ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop, attended many conventions and workshops, performed in numerous recitals and shows, and competed in the UDA nationals for 3 consecutive years as a co-captain for her school’s dance team.
Denys Koloda started to take dance lessons when he was 8 years old in Nikolaev, Ukraine. Enjoying the physical aspect of ballroom dancing, he competed as an amateur and a professional and won many competitions. What captivated him, however, was the performance aspects of ballroom dancing.
Yana came to the United States from her homeland of Ukraine. She has been involved in dance since young age, exploring various dance styles and attending workshops taught by Ukrainian and Russian professional dancers. Yana is very patient with her students and has a great personality. She enjoys working with couples as well as teaching group classes. We are so excited to have Yana being part of our Ultimate Ballroom team!
