By the age of 8, he was already on the competitive floor and he knew it was something he wanted to do for the rest of his life.For the next fifteen years, Radomir (known as Rado to his friends) trained daily, being taught and mentored by some of the best ballroom instructors in Europe.
Fast forward to 2022: Rado continues to teach, sharing his passion, creativity and energy with students. He choreographs and participates annually in the National Kidney Foundation Charity Dancing with the Stars event in Arizona, and cohosts two showcase events for students and fellow professionals each year. In partnership with Gergana Slavova and Nikolay Kralev, he recently opened NRG Dance in Tempe, Arizona – creating a “home” for their shared love of dance, and providing a place where dancers of all levels, interests and abilities can undertake their journey into this wonderful world of dance.
Bree was born in Savannah, Georgia and began dancing ballet and tap at the age of two. She strengthened her background at the North Carolina School of Performing Arts and was introduced into the Ballroom Dancing world with the Theater Arts division. She quickly decided she preferred ballroom and went in search of a partner in the American Rhythm style. In 2003, she moved to Phoenix, Arizona where she met Decho Kraev. In under three years she went on to win multiple championships as one of the few American female competitors in the Rhythm category. The ability to embrace the nuances of the American Rhythm style in a short time fuels her passion to teach students how to quickly embrace the necessary technique and styling students need to become successful competitors.
