Semion & Maria (RUS)

We are super excited to introduce……
Maria and Semion have been dance partners for about four years.

Semion has been dancing ever since he was eight. He started with ballroom dancing first, then got into social dancing, and finally into West Coast Swing. He is known for his musicality and great connection with his partners.

Maria has been dancing since 2007. In 2008 she fell in love with social partner dances. She started learning hustle/discofox and salsa. She had been dancing hustle and discofox for 4 years, working on her solo choreography as well when West Coast Swing came in to her dancing life. After that she couldn't stop dancing WCS. She enjoys the versatility of the dance, bringing new emotions, options for musicality and styling to every dance.

Semion and Maria were the first Russians to ever get to US Open Classic finals in both 2016 and 2017. Their partnership emphasizes musicality and connection. They love the possibilities for communication and dialogue between partners during every dance, and seek to help their students discover this incredibly fun aspect of WCS. They share a philosophy that care and attention are the best things partners can give to each other during any dance.

John & Alyssa (Canada/USA)

John Kirkconnell and Alyssa Marie Glanville are a dynamic, exciting partnership! They became partners five years ago and have taught all over the world. John started dancing West Coast Swing over 14 years ago and quickly became one of Canada’s best dancers and instructors. All his students love his playful personality and the connection he makes with the music.

Alyssa started West Coast Swing about 9 years ago, and immediately fell in love with the dance, especially the creative aspect drawn from other dances. She uses her experience in Lindyhop, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Jazz, and Ballet to enhance her West Coast Swing. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area has also given her many opportunities to teach and grow in her own dance.

Both John and Alyssa compete on the Swing Circuit in the Champions division. Together they have traveled around North America, Europe and Asia spreading their personal love for Swing. Their partnership emphasizes musicality and connection.
