 PRO Dima Kamali (Dance Harmony)

My ballroom dance journey began at an early age. To be exact I was 6 years old when I got into this fairytale for the first time. It was an unforgettable journey with plenty of success, victories and titles in my homeland. Now, when I moved to the United States I am eager to reach the heights of this sport with the most incredible team - Dance Harmony.

When asked which is my favorite dance I cannot choose one – every dance has its own amazing history and charm, but the closest to me is Rumba. When you dance this dance you understand - the magic does exist!

Ballroom dancing for me is not only sports, not only the taste of the victory, or the spirit of the competition. Ballroom dancing itself is a purpose of life, especially when you see it in the eyes of your students – that’s what matters to me – when the pupil succeeds it is the biggest victory for the teacher.

Although I have won many dance competitions and even was a vice-champion of the highest category tournament in Ukraine at the time - a Youth Ranking Championship, I believe that the most important victories are still ahead.
