“Dancing With Your Feet Is One Thing, But Dancing With Your Heart Is Another”
For the past six years, Karina Smirnoff has made her mark on prime time television, as one of the professional dancers on ABC’s top rated program, Dancing with the Stars. With the show’s twelfth season in full swing, Karina, a bride herself, is very busy transforming yet another star, Ralph Macchio, and launching her own dance studio. Karina’s new dance studio, Karina Smirnoff Dance, soon to open in Woodland Hills, CA will help engaged couples prepare for their first wedding dance while they have lots of fun keeping their romance alive through the wedding planning process.
In her new dance studio, Karina creates a sense of family and community, a place for couples to gain confidence for their first wedding dance, a place for new moms to nurture their bodies and spirits and a place for young kids to learn the discipline and determination of dance, whether to become professionals or simply to maintain a healthy life.
Karina Smirnoff’s Wedding Words of Wisdom™: Live to love and love to live.
- Karina Smirnoff shares her thoughts on dance: “Life is a dance and dance is life. It is a wedding of movement to the music. An art skillfully created into something beautifully pleasing to the eye. Dance is the most ancient form of communication and throughout history has stirred emotions, inspired nations, ignited imaginations, and captured hearts and souls.”
- According to Karina, dancing is medically proven to produce happy hormones. Dancing is Karina’s passion and she uses it to tell a story, a form of self-expression.
- Karina’s advice about the first wedding dance: “You are in the bubble. That bubble only includes you two. You have given people an opportunity to witness that special moment. You can’t possible be nervous and afraid … because this is about you. And the other people are just there, honored to be sharing your special moment with you. Remember that you’re dancing together for each other. Nobody else. And everyone else is grateful to be witnessing that special moment of love.”
