Danila, originally from Russia, started dancing at age 5. The former Moscow Closed Champion moved to the USA, where he met Nuria, originally from Spain and former member of the Guzman Ballet Company. Soon they started their ballroom partnership, and they have won numerous titles in the US and Canada.
The husband and wife team are Dual Fellow World Professional Dance Association Certified Examiners and are now Franchisees of the Arthur Murray Dance Center in Cranford, New Jersey, since 2009. Aside from her love of dancing, Nuria is a devoted fan of musicals from the 1940s and loves to cook. Danila is an experienced pilot, a black belt in Muay Thai and Baritsu, and a professional diaper-changer—and also sometimes dances in his free time.
