Tatiana has been dancing from an early age and entered the professional scene in 1989 as both dancer and teacher. The next few years of competing all over the world allowed her to become the champion of Ukraine in Sports Dance and take prize-winning places in various prestigious International competitions. The highlights of those few years include:
- Two consecutive 3rd places at the Soviet Union Championships (1990, 1991)
- Ukrainian National Champion in Classic Show Dance (1990, 1991)
- 5 time Ukrainian Professional Standard Champion (1989-1993)
- Semi-finalist of the European Standard Championship (1990)
After moving to Cyprus, she opened in 2001 the International Dancing Centre, teaching Latin and standard ballroom, as well as salsa to both kids and adults. Students of the school have been already performing salsa at the UK Salsa Congress (2005 and invited in 2006) and Cyprus Salsa Congress 2005, as well as competed at the Latin Ballroom World Championships (highlights include one final and two semi-finals), while Tatiana was the official judge at the later.
Tatiana has been dancing salsa since 2001, gaining knowledge in both Cuban and Puerto Rican Styles (LA and lately NY) mainly by taking workshops and visiting salsa congresses abroad.
