For the Ballroomers, here’s a nice, rather long interview with Yulia Zagoruychenko and Riccardo Cocchi, current world Latin champs.

They talk about dance versus sport (Riccardo was going to be a footballer on the Roma team — who knew?

For financial reasons, she could not afford to dance both Ballroom and Latin and so at the age of 16 she chose to pursue Latin.

At the age of 21 she decided to move to America, and partnered with Maxim Kozhevnikov.

World Latin dance champions, Riccardo Cocchi & Yulia Zagoruychenko rocked the ballroom dance world for decades racking up titles as both United States National champions and World Latin dance champions.

Hence, the world of Latin dancesport hasn’t been the same since this dynamic duo started dancing and competing together in 2007.

As a child, she enjoyed watching and copying dancers on TV so her mother agreed to take her to dance classes where she did folk dancing for four years. At the age of 11, Zagoruychenko started to teach kids to earn some money which she then gave to her parents.

At age 12, she earned her first major title in Russia when she became the Russian Junior National Champion.

She spent four years dancing folk dancing before moving into other dance genres.
