Meet the Dance For You studio team: administrators, managers, teachers, instructors, dancers, choreographers.
Julia was born in Russia, in a sunny city called Krasnodar. After the graduation in 2013 from Krasnodar State University she decided to move to China to continue her education in hospitality management.
In 2015 when the courses were over, she decided to move to UAE to gain more experience in hospitality and see the country and the culture from inside.
After more then 3 years in hospitality industry she decided to change a field and find the opportunity to combine the work, passion and new challenges.
Dance For You Studio was that place which was given that opportunity.
“As the person who never was a part of dancing before but saw the videos or how another people dance, I was feeling excited from one side. But also felt nervous a little bit” – she said.
“However, when you enter to the studio you mindset changes. The music, friendly atmosphere and the dances themselves are making you feel comfortable, stay longer and forget about the daily routine while you are there»-she also added.
As the person who never danced, she also felt shy to step on the floor. However, the correct approach of a team helped to forget about it.
Now, Dance For You Studio became not only the working place but also the place of enjoyment and fun.
"Forget your hectic life and just dance"

Dance gives me an amazing physical workout while I let my emotions out and clear my head. Dancing lets me forget about the people that let me down in life and lets me express my emotions without causing any dramas! Dancing is simply amazing and something everybody should try at least once in their life. Dancing is an escape. An escape to a different world that is different for every single person.

I have always loved to dance. I started at aged 10 at boarding school in Scotland with Scottish Country Dancing, but once I moved to Dubai I started to look for new dancing challenge and was encouraged to try Ballroom dancing by a close friend.
I started learning the American Style of Ballroom dancing but changed to the International style as it held many more opportunities for me to broaden my dance knowledge and to most importantly compete. The more I danced the more I fell in love with Ballroom dancing, every step on the ballroom floor increased my passion and drive to improve and succeed as a Ballroom dancer.
I love to challenge myself both in dancing and in other areas of my life. Having represented the United Kingdom Internationally in both the Equestrian disciplines of Showjumping and Endurance racing, my natural competitive spirit drove me to focus on the improvement of my dancing so I could start to compete.
I currently compete Pro-Am Internationally, and I know how much passion, time, training and dedication and attention to detail it take to succeed.
It is because of this I decided to open Dance For You. I want not only to spread my love of Ballroom Dancing, but very importantly to also provide every dancer, whatever their level, and whatever their dancing goal with an International level of Teaching and Facilities so everyone can fulfill and hopefully exceed all of their dance aspirations and to follow their passion and dreams.
"As a result Dance For You was formed; a combination of Dreams, Dedication, Passion and an International level of Management and Teaching. I wish that everyone’s dreams are fulfilled with Dance For You."
