Alaina Rogozhin and Ryan Pflumm, are a competitive couple currently competing in the Rising Star division! Alaina says that Ryan is gregarious, outgoing and a natural leader. He never meets a stranger. While he didn’t find his dance journey until later in life, he makes up for that lost time with his intense desire to analyze and understand the dance to the full degree. He is passionate about learning, teaching and competing in west coast swing and wants nothing more than to give his knowledge to anyone who wants it. Ryan likes to call Alaina the “Silent Assassin.” When you meet her she is quiet, polite, kind and a typical introvert. As soon as you get her on the dance floor, however, you have unleashed the beast.
