Tatiana was the Russian Amateur National Champion in Ten Dance before coming to the United States and winning many of the top Professional Open and Rising Start International Latin championships, including the Ohio Star Ball and the U.S. Ballroom championship with Tony Dovolani of "Dancing With The Stars". After retiring to start a family, she made a comeback with partner Werner Figar and they reached the World Professional Latin championships in Germany.
In 2018, Tatiana formed an exciting new partnership with Anatoliy Shvarts who was a finalist and medalist at national championships in his native Moldova before coming to the United States. He and partner Renata Golbert (now his wife, Renata Shvarts) placed third at the U.S. National Amateur Ballroom championships before turning professional and winning multiple international Latin championships in the New York City area. They were also featured as Principal Dancers on television, music videos and films.
In their first competition together, Anatoliy & Tatiana took first place at the 2019 New York Dance Festival Amateur Senior II Latin division and in their very next competition they captured the U.S. National Champion titles in both Senior I and Senior II Latin divisions.
They plan to continue entering top competitions in Senior Latin divisions both nationally and internationally.
