Vladimir's competitive career began at the age of 8. A year later, at the age of 9 years old, he became the Vice-Champion of Moscow in the "E" Class, competing in the 6 dance program. Soon, he changed partners and began dancing with a girl who was one age category older - this meant that the young boy had to compete with older couples in the Junior II division, when he was only yet a Junior I. Nonetheless, even with such an obstacle, he and his partner began their journey in the top 48 of the Russian National Junior II Championship and finished in the final.  Vladimir's Standard coach was Igor Litvinov and he dedicates all of his success in the Standard division to this man. Once Igor moved to America, it was difficult to find a new trainer that was just as interested in Vladimir's couple to keep sustaining constant improvement. As a result, it was a challenging to continue with Ballroom - Vladimir, as a result, transitioned into focusing solely on the Latin division.  On January 9th of 2010, Vladimir and Masha became the Bronze Medalists of the Russian National Amateur Latin Championships among the best of competitors and as a result of their placement, were supposed to attend the European Cup that year in representation. However, just a few weeks later, they ended up dancing the WDSF Latin World Cup on the 22nd of January in Vancouver, Canada, Vladimir and Masha took this World Cup title that day.  In terms of the WDSF GrandSlam Tournaments, Vladimir and Masha's highest results were in Platja d'Aro, Spain in 2009 where they finished in 2nd. They will never forget the German Open Championships (GOC) of that same year, in Stuttgart, Germany, where they concluded in 4th place, just one step from making the pedestal. Such energy experienced here gave them a great push for the rest of their dancing careers.  The Baltic Grand Prix held December of 2012 brought Vladimir and Masha their second victory as WDSF Latin World Cup Champions in Riga, Latvia. This was the couple's last event in which they competed as Amateurs.  In 2012, Vladimir and Masha decided to push their limits by trying themselves out in Showdance. Their dancing experience aided them in taking the Russian National title, and as a result, representing in the World Championship just a month later in September in Beijing. This was their first year's experience in Showdance.  Vladimir is one of the most accomplished athletes within the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF). His competitive titles include but are not limited to becoming the World Latin Showdance Champion, a 2-time World Cup Amateur Latin Champion, Latin Champion of the first World DanceSport Games, as well as the Russian Latin National Champion in both the Professional and Amateur divisions. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/scaloradancesport/support

Thus, the project of "Stay United" was formed. This video features Antoaneta Popova!  Antoaneta is originally from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. She moved to Canada in 2008 to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a World Champion in Ballroom Dancing. Matching up with her dance partner Anton Belyayev brings that dream to reality and in 2016 when they become the WDSF Professional World 10 Dance Champions. Other titles and achievements:  4 Times Bulgarian DanceSport Champion 7 Times Canadian Absolute Champion North American Champion Asian Pacific Champion World Cup Amateur Champion World Cup Professional Champion Miss Bulgaria in Canada 2015 Executive Director for Miss Face of Humanity Antoaneta has always been passionate about helping others, and in 2017/18 she accepted the honorable position of Executive Director for Miss Face of Humanity. From a young age she was very passionate about drawing so, after being in special program for arts in elementary school, she continued studying at the best high school for arts in Bulgaria and was accepted at the National Art Academy. Unfortunately, later on a hard decision had to be taken and it came down to either pursuing her dancing or art dreams! Since she decided to move to Toronto to represent Canada as a competitive ballroom dancer, she had to drop out of the Art Academy in Bulgaria. However, that hasn’t stopped her from keeping up with her art as a designer of her dance costumes and also her students’ costumes. Today, Antoaneta is committed to raising a new generation of champions and helping the world become a better place with one random act of kindness each day! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/scaloradancesport/support
