Elena Grinenko, undefeated US and World Rhythm Champion with Tony Dovolani, will be at Fred Astaire Cherry Hill on January 27, 2014.
Elena started dancing in Russia at the age of seven years and, in her Junior and Youth career, became a Moscow, Russian and Soviet Union Finalist in all divisions of ballroom dancing. Shortly after moving to the United States, Elena Grinenko partnered with Maksin Chmerkovskiy. They went on to win the Closed American National Rising Star Championship and the International Rising Star Championship. Within six months they became one of the top twelve Professional Dancers in the World.
In 2005, Elena decided to dance with Tony Dovolani. After just five weeks of preparation for competition, they won their first title. Together they became undefeated National and World Champions in the American Rhythm Category.
Elena’s claim to fame is her role on ABC’s hit “Dancing with the Stars.” She was partnered with anchor Tucker Carlson in Season Three, and NBA Legend Clyde Drexler in Season Four.
We are delighted to have Elena here at Fred Astaire Cherry Hill. A limited number of private coaching lessons are available – call the Studio at (856) 770-4294 for details or contact us online.
