Sergey, also known as Kuva, started dancing in 2008 and already in 2009 became a teaching partner of Tanya Georgiievska. Sonya joined dancing in 2010 and in 2011 Kuva and Sonya have become a couple, studying Boogie Woogie, Lindy-hop and Collegiate Shag all over Europe, taking classes from Lennart Westerlund, Barbara Billups, Sugar Sullivan, Gil Brady, Marcus Koch and Bärbl Kaufer. They turned that knowledge into the teaching concept of interaction within dancing and musicality. Kuva is also a professional musician and used to play in the band (guitar is his main instrument), which makes him provide students with deeper understanding of music.

In 2012 they started competing and opened their own Swing dance school “Hot Boogie Club” in Kiev affiliated in Khmelnitskiy (Ukraine).
