Kiril’s parents were professional dancers and he started his first Cha-Cha steps in their studio in Yaroslavl, Russia at the age of 3. When Kiril turned 6, he took 2nd place at the Russian National Championship, which marked the start of his career. As a child he wanted to play hockey, because it was the main sport in his home town, but destiny decided otherwise and Kiril never looked back.
Kiril’s professional achievements include:
- Latin National Russian Champion
- European Vice-Champion
- Under 21 World Latin Champion
- Finalist of all major International Professional Latin Championships

One time Kiril was dancing at a big championship in China and didn’t realised he had his flight booked for day too late. Luckily him and his partner were informed about their mistake just on time. The couple took a 9 hour flight overnight from Moscow, did their grooming and costume change in the taxi on the way from the airport and only managed to dance because the organisers agreed to change the schedule of the competition that day.
