Viktoria is an inspired performer and instructor of Oriental Dance and Russian Gypsy Dance in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. She offers classes and workshops at her studio, the FireBird Dance Place, located in Naperville, IL.
She was raised with Russian Gypsy dance in her native Russian and learned to spin around a room without falling before she knew how to read.
She attended her first belly dance class about 10 years ago after she came to America and its beauty took her breath away. She hasn't stopped learning, performing and teaching since then. Viktoria has been pursuing excellence in Oriental Dance with outstanding teachers and performers from the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.
She has performed and taught workshops throughout the Midwest. She is a featured dancer at a number of Russian restaurants in the Chicagoland area where she has the opportunity to showcase both dance styles.
Viktoria is dedicated to introducing the art of Russian Gypsy Dance to Midwestern audiences and continuing to showcase the beauty of Oriental Dance through performance and teaching.
