Biography

Anna Trebunskaya began dancing at the age of six in her native Russia. Her parents owned a dance studio, so it was only natural that Anna took to dancing from an early age. At the age of seven she entered her first competition, which she won, and she has been winning titles (first amateur and now professional) ever since.

Trebunskaya moved to the United States with her parents when she was 17 years old. Both her mother and father were professional ballroom dancers, and her mother still makes her costumes today.

She is married to her former partner and fellow "Dancing with the Stars" cast-mate, Jonathan Roberts. [http://www.jonathanrobertsdancer.com/ Official Web Site of her Husband, Jonathan Roberts]
