A Note from Christine
"After 30 years in real estate, it was time for a change. After retirement and a total re-invention of my life and career, I became and Arthur Murray student. I experienced how it positively changed my life forever as well as witnessed the change in other students around me. With that experience and training, I jumped at the chance to become a franchisee. Currently, the Greenwich dance center is home to world and national champion dancers and instructors and serves as a vehicle from which we support many charities."
A Note from Iraida
"I am a native of St. Petersburg, Russia and began ballroom dancing at the age of seven. Over the years I studied contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, swing and ballet and performed with dance companies and in various projects in Russia, productions with Mariinskiy Theatre and many more. In 2006 I graduated from St. Petersburg University of Sports with a degree in Physical Therapy to be able to approach teaching at a new level. I moved to America in 2007 and began my career with Arthur Murray International where I partnered with Ricardo Sopin and together we won many American Rhythm Championships across the US. In 2010 we were featured on ABC's Dancing With The Stars. With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am very passionate about enhancing people's lives through dance!"
