The passionate and experienced head coach, Olga, teaches classes at New Stars. Olga founded New Stars Dance School in 2019 and soon became popular with the local community and it has been growing ever since. At New Stars, Olga has developed a unique dance program for kids, including ballet, ballroom, and rhythmic gymnastic elements. Our programs improve students’ dancing technique, as well as develop their physical fitness and social skills. Olga is both the founder and lead teacher at New Stars and is an experienced ballet and ballroom dancer. Olga developed her solid dance background by attending a Russian ballet school from a very young age. Since moving to Canada, Olga has worked as a choreographer for one of the most prestigious rhythmic gymnastics clubs in Nova Scotia. However, her passion for dance, movement, and art meant she dreamt of owning her own studio. Olga has since developed a distinctive program for kids which includes ballet, ballroom, and rhythmic gymnastics to promote physical fitness and mental wellbeing. She now teaches her programs to happy students at the Halifax and Hammonds Plains studios.
Each of our programs at New Stars includes an engaging mix of dance, body conditioning, and personal development. Classes include a combination of ballet, ballroom, and rhythmic gymnastics. Students love when Olga adds some rhythmic gymnastics apparatus to classes such as hula hoops and ribbons.
Vlada is a professional dancer and trainer who has been dancing her whole life. Originally from Ukraine, Vlada started dancing at the very young age of three years old, beginning with folk dance and choreography. When Vlada was nine years old, she decided to try a different style of dance and turned her attention to oriental dancing. She dedicated herself to perfecting her dancing and completed countless sessions with both local Ukrainian and foreign teachers. Soon, she was skilled enough to participate in competitions and even won numerous prizes.
Later in her dance career, Vlada studied ballet, learning all the techniques and choreography that would be needed for teaching. Vlada performed as a ballerina with the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theatre and was chosen as a member of the troupe that toured across Holland. Vlada started teaching dance in the Ukraine and will be teaching both kids and adult classes with New Stars Dance School from September.
