Oleg Suvorov, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, came naturally to ballroom dance when his mother enrolled him in lessons at the age of 7. During his youth career, he was the winner of city and regional dance competitions and a finalist at the national level. After taking a hiatus from dancing for a few years and ultimately deciding to move to the United States in 1991, Oleg returned to dance as both a performer and instructor.
1993 marked the official beginning of Oleg’s competitive professional career and he won several Rising Star events. In 1996 Oleg teamed up with Tatiana Pavlova and together they achieved great success, winning many events – most notably the National Professional Rising Star Championships in 1999. In 2005, both Oleg and Tatiana decided to shift the focus from their pro career to teaching and competing in Pro/Am events with students. Teaching has been Oleg’s passion ever since.

Oleg’s vast experience as a competitor and coach comes through in his ability to present dance concepts easily and practically. He feels passionately about helping his students reach their goals and sharing with them his lifetime knowledge about dancing.
At this point in my life, I don’t imagine doing anything else than teaching dance. I know that teaching is one of the very few professions where you can impact someone’s life, whether they are 5 or 85. It is a great joy for me.
