EXPLORE THE WONDERFUL WORLD
NIKA INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY, founded in 1976 by renowned dancer and choreographer Elena Zakharova in Penza, Russia, started out as a youth dance program and has since evolved into a prestigious and globally recognized dance school. In a significant milestone year, 2004, the program was adopted by studios in the United States, propelling its dancers to national and international competitions where they achieved remarkable success, including becoming US National finalists and champions, as well as World Open finalists and champions.
The impact of NIKA is evident in the accomplishments of its alumni, many of whom have gone on to become accomplished professional ballroom and Latin coaches and adjudicators in the United States, Russia, and other countries. Additionally, they have found success as performers and choreographers for popular television shows such as "Dancing with the Stars" in the US and Russia, "America's Got Talent," "Oprah," and more.
