Masha and Alex are the headliners of balboa in Russia. Finalists and winners of numerous Russian and international competitions. Have been teaching regular classes in Moscow since March 2007, while constantly conducting workshops all over Russia and teaching together and with other partners (Frederic Barbe (Canada), Olivier Harouard (France), Albert Ferran (Spain) and Mickey Fortanasce (USA), Olga Bulatnova (Russia), Maria Pashinskaya (Russia)) at swing dance events in Russia, Ukraine, Belarussia, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain.

Masha tries to expand and enrich her dance experience through all other swing dances (especially lindy-hop and blues) plus salsa and argentinian tango. While teaching, she practices an individual approach to each student, strives to pay attention to details and exercise precision in technique, and most of all – to inspire musicality, creativity and personal style in her students.
