Slavik Kryklyvyy is, without a doubt, one of the best male dancers on this planet. He had just recently teamed up with Anna Melnikova (who used to dance with Stefano Di Filippo). This is the first video made public of their Rumba show dance. The song is called “I Finally Found Someone” by Bryan Adams & Barbara Streisand, and I think it makes a lot of people wonder whether Slavik has really finally found the one?
Throughout his dancing career, Slavik has partnered some of the best female dancers including Joanna Leunis, Karina Smirnoff, Elena Khvorova and Hanna Karttunen. However, it seems that ever since his partnership with Karina ended, Slavik was not able to find the right partner. Following Karina, his partnerships were short and unfullfilled. It seems that Karina’s sharp, raw and somewhat “Bitchy” style of dancing was the best complement to Mr. Slavik’s elegance (I guess both Elena and Hanna were just too sophisticated for him!). Anna Melnikova on the other hand seems to have that same fiery energy of Karina. She may finally prove to be THE partner for Slavik.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that they stay together and watch how their dancing develops in the future. In the meantime, enjoy their video! The dancing here still looks new but they have great chemistry together and that promises to bring great dancing in the near future.
