Children love to dance. You surely have noticed that too among your kids, nephews, nieces, or younger cousins.

Dancing is undeniably fun.

Other than the enjoyment that kids get, there are also several benefits of dance for kids. Dancing is definitely a great way to keep the body active. And parents who let their children attend dance lessons know very well the benefits of doing so.

One great thing about dancing is it helps the body to be physically fit. This also helps children to boost their self-confidence and be creative. They also become more sociable and get excited about attending the dance lessons with other kids that make it more fun.

Mothers Sasha Jeltuhin and Anna Llorente are able to convince their kids to love dancing, ballroom dancing in particular.

Their children, Yasha Jeltuhin and Daniela Avanzini, have been dancing since they were still three years old.

Even on a dance floor packed with adult dancing couples, these two tiny dancers aren’t intimidated to groove and show their talents. With Anna Llorente’s help, the two are able to master their routine and present it confidently to judges and audiences in a professional manner.

Anna Llorente is a Latin dancer who is Daniela’s mom. She is a former World Ballroom Dance Champion, a dance educator, and a choreographer.

Looking at the two as they step on the dance floor, you can see how poised they are in carrying themselves. Apparently, they look like pro dancers attending a grand competition.

With their love for dancing, Daniela and Yasha learn their routine quickly, and they master it by heart. They know what it means to put a good performance when stepping on the dance floor during the Atlanta Open 2010.

The tiny dance couple’s routine begins with some hip action, and they look so cute in it.

Then they move their feet to the steps of Samba dancing, back and forth, right and left. The two are enjoying their dance. Daniel turns a couple of times with an arm extension to add flair. Well, she remembers what her mother has taught them.

The audience is entertained by the cute dancers’ movements and routines. They have really dedicated their time to pull off a stunning performance that makes the crowd cheer for them.

The two take a few more steps heading to the middle and the other side of the dance floor. Their slick moves show that they listened to their dance coach and especially their mothers, who always cheer for them on the sidelines and are always proud of their achievements, no matter the size.

Do Yasha and Daniela still dance together?

Eleven years after their performance in the Atlanta Open 2010, here they are now.

Yasha Jeltuhin is into the Cyr wheel. The Cyr wheel is one form of an acrobatic apparatus with a single ring that’s made from steel or aluminum. This wheel must be 4 to 6 inches taller than the performer.

Daniela Avanzini is still into dancing and has done commercials for Haverty’s Furniture store.

It’s good to know that even if they have taken different paths, Yasha and Daniela continue to pursue their passion and strive to give the best in their craft.
