Studio Owner | Dance Instructor
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!
