    Tone was working at Rogers, and started as an amateur with Basil Issaev two years ago, about a year ago she turned pro. She has since switched to Samuele. I believe they work for Arthur Murrays now. (maybe, could be wrong about that though)

    Thanks, Larinda, you're an encyclopedia of dance. It looks like she has been dancing rather spectacularly after turning to a pro only a yr ago, especially in a new partnership. Another one I want keep my eyes on.

    Tone works for Arthur Murray in Roxbury (or should I say Succasunna) and Samuele works at Starlight in Nutley.

    she turned pro when started dancing with Basil, she had am partner before when she was at BYU... they used to compete in Utah mainly but couple times ventured out... She's from Norway originally.

    She improved a lot in the last 2 years... adn has fantastic look on the floor... beautiful girl... If I sponsor any couple for gowns it will be her for sure.

    Hey all! Not sure if this is already posted but there is a really good youtube link of Irina and her partner from the Philly Fest '08. She's fabulous. You can catch other great pros too if you watch the other dancers around them! Check it out: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=_y6Fq35rA_g

    haha that's ok. I know very little about standard and still say certain standard couples are fabulous. When they look that good, you know they're good. Do you happen to know where Irina teaches? I would love lessons from her or her partner!
