BiographyEdit

Retrieved from abc.com
Gleb Savchenko’s passion for the performing arts began at the tender age of seven. His hard work, extraordinary natural abilities and discipline paid off when at just 14 years old he won his first and second professional international championships. Savchenko graduated from the Russian Theatre Arts University with a Masters in choreography and also studied drama and theatre there. He is a specialist in International Latin dance with proficiency in ballet and contemporary dance.

Savchenko has previously taken part as a pro on the Australian, Russian, U.S. and U.K. versions of “Dancing with the Stars.” In the U.S. in 2013, he partnered with restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump; and in 2015, he made his debut on the number one-rated show in the U.K. on BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing,” where he reached the semifinals with his partner, the presenter Anita Rani.

When he was introduced to the U.K. audience on the “Strictly Come Dancing” launch show, he caused a huge stir on social media with viewers finding the Russian irresistible, and many made comparisons between Savchenko and a young Patrick Swayze. Following his “Strictly” appearance, U.K. viewers were left wanting more, and so Gleb appeared on the BBC primetime show, “Celebrity Masterchef.”

When he had finished filming in the U.K., he made his return to “Dancing with the Stars” in the U.S. and was partnered with Jana Kramer. He and Jana reached the finals of the dance competition and often received perfect 10 scores, most notably for their tango. After the finals, he flew straight to the U.K. to make his West End stage debut in the spectacular show, “One More Dance,” which was choreographed by his wife and dance supremo, Elena Samodanova. He then took part in the nationwide U.S. tour, “We Came to Dance,” with some of his fellow “Dancing with the Stars” professionals.

Gleb Savchenko is not only an extremely talented dancer, but is 6"1' with model looks and has a gorgeous family, too. His wife Elena is also a professional dancer, and they have a five-year-old daughter, Olivia.

He maintains a thriving modelling career, and for the past two years he has released bestselling calendars and has a popular underwear range “Gleb Collection.”
