Eldar is originally from Russia, but has an Azerbaijan background from his father’s side. He started to dance when he was twelve under the supervision of Russian coaches. At the same time he was also attending a music school and was very successful in that field.
After school Eldar passed entrance exams to the International University of Economics and Law in Tymen (Siberia). He also won Ural and Siberia championships five times as Junior and Youth and made it into the Finals in Russian National Championships.
There came a time for Eldar to make a choice for his future path and he decided that dancing was what he would like to do professionally for the rest of his life. Eldar then moved to Italy to study Ballroom under the guidance of Caterina Arzenton and Latin with Jerry Abrate. After half a year of hard practicing, he made it into the Final in the Blackpool Festival.
