Tal Livshitz & Ilana Kesselman
Our Names are Tal Livshitz and Ilana Keselman. Our passion in life is our love for each other and dancing together. We are both from Israel and are now proud Americans. An interesting fact about us outside of dance is that we’ve been together for over a decade. We were actually dating each other before we started dancing together. Ilana got involved in dancing because her mom brought her to dance at the age of 5. It was the same for Tal. Tal’s mom is a professional dancer and she brought him at the age of 6.
We committed to latin dancing because we absolutely love the music. Our partnership was established after out previous partners broke up with us (in 2012), and we were in love with each other and dance. It just made sense to do what we love with the person we love. We train in Roselle Park NJ in a studio called Paragon Ballroom.
Through out our partnership we have been fairly successful. These achievments include; WDCAL Amateur World Final, International and UK Amateur Semi Finalists, and US Amateur Runners Up. However, this is only the beginning. As a couple our goal is to become the World Champions!
