Slava Polubnev and Kristin Reichardt began their professional dance partnership in January 2019,
which soon led to the development of DanceFam Ballroom & Latin Studio.

Both professional ballroom and Latin dance competitors and instructors with a collective more than 20 years experience between them, the pair started their studio with the core values of artistry, education and community, born from a passion for using dance and artistic movement to help people build connections with others and develop their own artistry and self-confidence.

They compete professionally together in American Rhythm, as well as with their students in various styles. They have made top 3 placements in professional Rising Star American Rhythm division finals at competitions from Ohio to Texas, as well as finaled in professional Open American Rhythm divisions.

Slava specializes in developing unique choreography designed to highlight each individual student's story, goals, and skills.
Kristin specializes in styling and characterization, as well as developing youth dancers
