Svitlana Gliebova was born in Lviv, Ukraine. She studied Public Relations in Kiev National University of Culture and Arts where she met Artur Sveshnikov. After Artur got invited to teach ballroom dancing at one of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in United States, Svitlana decided to move to US and continue with her modeling career. After Artur became a co-owner of Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Svitlana began training to become a certified Ballroom Dance Instructor.  She fell in love with the Fred Astaire Company, as she saw how students became more happy, confident, and graceful after each lesson. The ability to bring music, dance and joy to people every day is what inspires her to continue learning and make sure she becomes the best teacher she can be for her students
