Alexander Litvinenko was born on May 28, 1972 in Donetsk, USSR, where he lived until 1988. Then he moved to Moscow.
He never thought that his life would be connected with Ballroom Dancing and Choreography as he always thought that he would be an ornithologist or a biologist.
One day, at the age of 13, his schoolmate invited him to dancing school.
In 1988-1993 Litvinenko became the winner of numerous Amateur Latin and Ballroom Dance Competitions and Championships, in 1993 Alexander moved to professionals.
