Ottawa Ballroom Dance Experts Preparing To Represent Canada On the World Stage

With only weeks of training, Dancing with the Stars competitors perform dazzling routines in front of millions; however, any ballroom expert knows that it takes years of practice to truly master this glamorous sport.

Oksana Ivanova-Shelkovyy and Yuriy Shelkovyy, Ottawa’s local ballroom dancing celebrities, have spent their whole lives preparing for the chance to make their mark on the world stage.  This month, they hope all their hard work will pay off as they represent Canada at the prestigious World Professional 10 Dance  Professional Championships.

Both Yuriy and Oksana have been dancing since childhood and continue to devote countless hours to perfecting their craft. Between Yuriy’s full-time job and Oksana running their busy dance studio, Dance With Us Ottawa, the couple still manages to spend several hours each evening training for the competition.

The World Professional 10 Professional Dance Championships is one of the most prestigious dance competitions in the world .  Competitors from over 20 different countries will participate in the event, which is held in Salaberry‐de‐Valleyfield, Quebec.
