Overview

Anna Mikhed started Ballroom Dancing at the age of 5 in her hometown of Minsk, Belarus. In her youth, Anna was a multi-time national champion in her country and represented Belarus in many competitions and World Championships across the world.

After moving to the United States in 2000, Anna teamed up with the U.S. National Amateur Standard Champion, Victor Fung, in November of 2003. Together, with their Professional partnership, they quickly became the 2004 Open Professional Rising Star Standard Champions at the UK Open after only two months of dancing together. After six months, they won one of the most illustrious achievements within the Ballroom Dancing industry, the British Open Professional Rising Star Standard title.

Their perfectly matched body structures and complementary personalities made them one of the most attractive Ballroom Dancing couples of the day. Such qualities they possessed coupled with their energy and enthusiasm captivated those around them wherever they went. Victor and Anna were certainly one of the brightest and most talented Professional Standard couples in the modern era.

Since that time, Anna has been a U.S. National Professional Standard Vice Champion and a consistent Professional finalist in the World, UK Open, Blackpool Dance Festival and International Championships.

Anna is married to Dimitar Petrov with whom she has two daughters.
