Biography/Quote from Dancer:
Andrei: I am excited to have started dancing with Alana, we train hard together every day and are making great progress. She has introduced me to Freed of London shoes and I am beyond excited to be part of the Freed team. We strive to be the best and have big goals and ambitions, thank you to Freed of London for your faith and support in us.
Alana: I have been wearing Freed of London shoes for over three years and can honestly say they are the greatest shoes that are stylish and comfortable but yet allow me to be the best dancer I can be. I have been a finalist in many competitions from local UK competitions to big International competitions throughout the world and my shoes are my number 1 best friend. I never let them go into the luggage hold at airports; they remain in my hand luggage throughout any trips, for fear of losing them! Due to a partnership split I now have my new Latin dance partner, Andrei Shapkin, he is from the Ukraine and is a great dancer, both of us work hard training every day and look forward to conquering the Latin world.
Andrei wears the Chasse Latin shoe and Alana wears the Sylvia shoe.
