Tatiana Pavlova began her dance career at age 7 in St. Petersburg, Russia where she quickly excelled in ballroom dancing on a local level. At the age of 16 she moved to Moscow where her competitive dance career started to take shape. She was selected as the Russian representative to the World and European Dance Championships and was a finalist twice in the “World Cup” (Standard category). She was a finalist in open dance championships in Holland, Denmark, Norway and Italy and the winner of the “Grand Prix” dance series in Russia, all at a very young age. In 1996, after competing in America for the first time, She decided that California would be her new home. During that year she teamed up with Oleg Suvorov and together they reached the pinnacle of their professional careers.

For all of her achievements, Tatiana was awarded the title of “Star of National Russian Dance Sport” in 1998.

Tatiana’s warm and friendly personality shines through in her coaching. Tatiana understands the student’s point of view, having been a student herself, as a competitor since childhood. She knows the needs of students and how important it is to have a clear structure for optimal learning. Her years of teaching experience, combined with a love for sharing dance has made Tatiana a sought after coach.
I love teaching dance because I had lots of lessons myself and most of them were very confusing and misleading. I decided to make a system that would be simple and logical, and also a lot of fun!
