Gert & Kirsti Roslender
Gert and Kirsti Roslender began their ballroom dancing career over twenty years ago, starting as young teens in Estonia, ultimately representing their home country in European and World Chanpionships five times.
The Roslenders came to the United States in 1998, where they continued their professional careers by participating in more than 100 competitions, becoming United States Rising Star Standard Champions and Open Standard Grand Finalists.
Gert and Kirsti are certified by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), North American Teachers Association (NATA) and the National Dance Coucil of America (NDCA), placing them in an elite category of ballroom dance instructors worldwide who have attained these designations.
Currently, Gert and Kirsti are fulltime ballroom dance instructors who also perform professional dance shows. Their teaching is divided among four studios in as many cities, and their students are top-ranked Pro/Am competitors, nationally and regionally.
While Gert and Kirsti enjoy working with competition-level students, they also enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of dance with students at all levels, from young children to those who want to have fun and improve their skill as social dancers. Their philosophy is that dancing is fun and great exercise, and anyone can learn this beautiful form of expression for a lifetime of enjoyment.
