The rest of their history…
How it started
In 2006 Daric became Vice Champion in World and Europe Discofox for second time… And was asked to come in Moscow to give workshops… Nastia was already there, and they met this way. With no other possibility to communicate than by dance… What they did each year once… 2007… 2008… Then Daric did not come anymore until 2012, where Miss twice Russian Champion judged by his side. During May 2012 at WCS French Open, they decided to be couple, in love, live and soon in dance… Continuing each on his side to grow, they finally met on same dance floor as couple in dance in November 2012, where Nastia and Daric, by luck danced together and won the WestieFest in WCS intermediate, went to ½ final in Russian Championship Absolut, and Daric got second place in Russian Championship JnJ! Now they are Swiss Discofox Champions and both are competing in different divisions of WCS.
Daric and Nastia are among the strongest teachers in the techniques and different concepts of the dance. They have more then 13 years of teaching experiance. They developed their own intensive programs. They are coaching couples around the Europe, choreographing routines and shows for them, their students and different dance events, still performing with their shows and running several DiscoFox and WCS events in Switzerland. They are active dancers and judges, working special coaching programs for judges and teachers and holders of dance schooles.
Their goal is to make the Discofox and WCS community grow with the “emotional” aspect strongly represented. Through the music, through the partner, and using technic with new concept, but keeping the nature of the dance. The technic is a tool for them to be able to express themselves and not a goal. Musicality is one of the most important tool to live through the dance.
To date, Daric and Nastia hold numerous workshops on both Russia and Europe Discofox, and on West Coast Swing.
