This Competition class includes information, pointers, and conditioning for Ballroom and Latin dancing and competing in dancesport competitions, as well as Ballroom and Latin Rounds.


Olga BogdanovOlga Bogdanov, like Liene & Paolo Di Lorenzo, is among the most famous and decorated dancers in America and in the World. From a bronze medal at the European Championships in 1996 to Russian Open medalists and World Representative in 1998 to Rising Star Champion at the Ohio Star Ball in 2001, Olga has been a premier dancer.

Born in Astrakhan, a Russian city on the Volga River, Olga has been dancing since 5 years of age. She started in competition in both Latin and Standard, but soon focused on the Smooth dances as well.

The city of Astrakhan sponsored Olga in trips to Moscow and England for lessons from top flight professionals. In 1996, Olga took Silver at the Russian Open Championships followed by a bronze at the Russian Nationals. In 1998, she placed third at the European Championships in the Standard Division.

Late in 1998, US Standard Champions Jonathon Wilkins and Katusha Demidova sponsored her immigration to the US.

Olga has been an instructor at Goldcoast Ballroom since the year 2000. She teaches private lessons and provides coaching in International Standard and American Smooth style ballroom dance, and frequently competes with her students in Pro/Am Competitions.

This Competition Class (Ballroom & Latin Rounds) is open to amateur couples, pro/am couples, or singles.

In this class, like Liene and Paolo, Olga will teach pointers on how to improve your dancing and how to compete successfully in dance competitions. She may also give helpful exercises that condition you to do your best in ballroom dancing.

The class includes Ballroom and Latin rounds, in a simulated dance competition. Each student couple (or single) dances their own choreography during the simulated competition rounds.

Students can choose to participate in only the International Standard Ballroom rounds, only the International Latin rounds, or both. Each International Standard round includes all five of the International Standard dances – Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. Each Latin Round includes the five International Latin Dances – Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble, and Jive.

This simulation of a competition is great practice — especially if you are considering or planning to enter a dance competition – and great exercise, which will help improve your stamina!
