Yulia Zagoruychenko (born September 11, 1981) is the current World Latin Dance Champion, with her partner, Riccardo Cocchi.
For financial reasons, she could not afford to dance both Ballroom and Latin and so at the age of 16 she chose to pursue Latin.
At the age of 21 she decided to move to America, and partnered with Maxim Kozhevnikov.
Together they became the US National Professional Champions.
In the fall of 2007, she began dancing with Riccardo Cocchi.
Zagoruychenko and Cocchi won their first World Latin Dance Championship in 2010, and earned their second title in 2011.
