Meet Andrii Makieiev

Professional dance instructor

Andrii Makieiev

Hi, I’m Andrey. 

I embarked on a journey of Ballroom dancing at only 8 years old. And like most kids, I was learning how to dance both ballroom dance styles (Latin American and Standard). But, even at an early age, I knew that my passion lies in the Latin American dance style.

And this is how my journey took me in becoming a finalist, and with hard work and long hours in the ballroom with my dance partner soon enough we became Winners of the Ukrainian Ballroom Championship.

While practicing myself with a number of well famous dance teachers such as Alexander Gaidash, Alex Ivanets, Ekaterina Stolyarenko, Anton&Polina Skaskiv, I was sharing my knowledge and teaching both kids and adults Ballroom dancing. 

I taught my first dance class at the age of 17, and I can say that I found a missing part of myself. When I teach a dance class, time just stops to exist, and often you can see my colleagues coming to let me know I should finish a lesson. 

Later on, I taught dance lessons in the USA and Hong Kong. As I was teaching my students how to dance, I was learning how to construct my dance class to suit different audiences. It was challenging at the beginning. But this is how I got here, at Palais de Danse Dubai.

Teaching dancing in Hong Kong and the USA taught me how to approach future dancers and create personalized dance programs for everyone. The best part and my personal goal is to create a professional dancer out of a beginner and to do that while having a lot of fun.

  • Beginner Latin American dance style
