Zaur, performer, and dance instructor. Started his journey with martial arts professionally participating in competitions and winning regional and country championships.
But for him, first passion was art. An art of understanding the body movement, the art of understanding himself moving with the music. He showed his interest in music and dance early age, dancing and performing in Baku, Zaur’s place of birth. In his dance career, you had a pleasure performing in many dance projects like Riyadh season, Baku Formula 1, Musicals, and many more.
With years Zaur started to explore the connection between his 3 passions: Dance, Music, and martial arts, that same connection moved him further to explore, where he discovered his love for Contemporary dance style and Argentine tango.
Having more than 10 years of experience in teaching, he is voted one of the top dance coaches for Contemporary and Argentine tango dance style. In Zaur’s words, dancing is a consequence of music, it is a dialog with you and inner you. There is no difference if you dance alone or with your partner, as when you dance you need to find yourself in your partner and partner in you. Dancing is a way of loving yourself, understanding, and loving yourself will help you to except and love everything that surrounds you.

Palais de Danse was famous in the early part of last century for being the place for Ballroom dance in key cities around the world. London, Melbourne, Berlin and now Dubai have its own Palais de Danse, bringing back the excitements and romance of yesteryear, where man are Gentlemen, leaders on the dance floor and women are Ladies; delicate and feminine.
Victor and Yulia Harris, the Founders of PdD, met in Dubai in 2006. It was not an easy task to find a dance coach in the city back then to choreograph their wedding waltz, and they never thought, Ballroom dancing will became a big part of their life soon.
"we've made PdD our second home, where all our dancers/clients and friends are welcome - for a dance, coffee, party or a show.
Our own costume atelier is packed with Historical and Ballroom dresses as we Love to celebrate Life, dancing at Palais de Danse."
