I' m glad you found me.
My name is Atanas and I love to dance.
Once, I walked into a small dance studio and brought back home the warmest feelings of all. I kept going back for more, until one day, my passion became my life.
I started dancing at the age of 9 and have been doing it for 20 years now. Winning the Bulgarian National 10 Dance championship was a dream come true. From then on, I knew I would pursue a career in dance, and in ever looked back.
After finishing my third season in Dancing with the Stars, I moved to the United States and started my teaching career. Soon after, I realized that teaching and coaching Pro-Am and Amateur students is one of the things I am most passionate about. My Pro-AM have won National and World titles and made finals in many major competitions. This year, at Seattle Star Ball, I was given the Top Teacher award.
I do what I do?
I dance because I am obsessed with creating oneness with the music and sharing it with another human being. I teach to inspire more people to create experiences that will last a lifetime.
I do it?
I believe that everyone can learn to dance and achieve perfection if given the right tools. My main tools for achieving success on the dance floor are understanding of the music and biomechanics.
My specialty is ballroom dance. I teach, compete, coach, choreograph for competitive couples and Pro-AM dancers. Want to realize your dance dream? Act on it now.
I will not have you without the darkness
I will not have let you have me without the maddness
that makes me.
If our demons cannot dance,
neither can we.
