Galina has been a dancer her whole life: ballet and ballroom since early age, 10 years of salsa dancing and Kizomba since Spring 2012 when she discovered it and fell in love with it. Galina has taught in Sedona and Phoenix, AZ, Big Island, HI, in Vancouver BC, at the Las Vegas Salsa Congress, in Miami Afro-Creole Mayhem kizomba festival, Playa del Carmen, Mexico, in Seattle at the Dance Festival at the Center of the Universe, and taught ongoing classes and workshops in Seattle for couple years.
She took more than 200 hours of teacher trainings in kizomba and semba from Petchu & Vanessa from Angola/Portugal, Afro-Latin Connection (Portugal) and The Fantastic 4 (Portugal).
Galina (with Phillyp Chanlatte from Boston) won 2nd place in the International Semba Competition in Lisbon Portugal in December 2015.
Galina loves sharing all the knowledge and dance experience she has accumulated from all over the world she's so excited to be teaching Kizomba in and out of US.
