Kirill & Valerie first started dancing together at 5 years old. They train together 6-7 days a week, 4-5 hours a day at the Brilliant DanceSport Studio. In order to compete with the strongest competitors at the most prestigious competitions, they train thoroughly. Their love of Dance has allowed them to travel and see different cities and countries as they are often on the road, taking planes, buses and cars. After competitions, they always find time to sight see, do fun unique activities, hiking, go-karting, soap making amongst other activites! In the little spare time that they have when at home, Kirill loves to play video games and is a champion at many of them. He also plays soccer and runs. He has a pet snake. Valerie loves animals, skiing and skating; does gymnastics and a bit of ballet too!
