Viktoriya Wilton

Viktoriya was born in Ukraine and started dancing at the age of five, inspired by her father’s love to this beautiful sport. She took part in her first competition when she was seven and went on to become a junior 10 dance National finalist.

During University years Viktoriya scored further success, the most noteworthy being with the Competition Aerobic Team that was awarded 4th place at the National Championships.

It has always been Viktoriya’s dream to teach dance and share her passion with others. She moved to England in 2002 and qualified as a fitness instructor and then IDTA dance teacher. She was running various dance and fitness classes across Devon and Cornwall, but the true destination was London, where she returned to the big sport as a professional competitor, teacher and later a dance school principal.

In 2012 – 2015 Viktoriya continued her professional dance carrier as a teacher and performer with Andrew Cuerden, taking part in various lecturing and show projects around the UK and abroad.

In 2015 – after some break from the competitive dance floor Viktoriya has decided to return to the big sport and was representing England as a Latin Professional with Paulius Vaskelis. They ranked 8th in the UK Closed and 46th Professional Rising Star at British Open Championship in Blackpool 2017.

Since Sep 2017  Viktoriya  changed her dance style preferences and is now competing in professional American Smooth.

Her latest achievements include:
12th at Champions Ball, Moscow in April 2018
7th at Ultimate Challenge Competition, London in May 2018
14th at British Open Championship, Blackpool in May 2018
9th at Open European Championship, Moldova in April 2019
5th at Ultimate Challenge Competition, London in May 2018
18th at British Open Championship, Blackpool in May 2019
4th at Amazing Vienna Championship in December 2019

Her biggest passion is, of course, inspiring others with all the beautify that dancing has to offer. Viktoriya teaches many of the classes within the school, private lessons, including pro-am competitors and performers, students preparing for examinations, etc.
