So when the opportunity presented itself, I thought it was a dream come true." After her first taste of life on the Broadway stage, Smirnoff says she is eager to return.
Once a child plagued by ADHD, Smirnoff still bursts with energy and relishes her nonstop lifestyle as a professional dancer and celebrity.After graduating from high school, Smirnoff enrolled at Fordham University where she double-majored in economics and information systems programming and planned to attend law school.However, while still studying at Fordham, Smirnoff also resumed dance lessons.For the last few days she's been tweeting happily about progress with her new partner Aaron Carter, and three weeks ago she tweeted about how she and Maks were disagreeing over decorating their home. OMG, yesterday, Maks tweeted, "What was meant to be a 'life long book', turned into a 'chapter'......now that 'chapter' is finished......Se la vie..." (The post was removed before the researching of this story.) Yep, looks like Maks is groveling, even though AOL is reporting he dumped Karina because she's "too high maintenance" and "lacked independence."However they'll stay a team to fulfill their obligation to dance together at this year's Emmys on Septemer 20 but will no longer share a dressing room, according to Karina Smirnoff partnered with Roman Nabatov in 1996, and the pair placed 22nd at the U. In 2001, she switched partners again, and went on to dominate ballroom dance competitions for the next four years. Karina Smirnoff was born on January 2, 1978, in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.
