View Complete CV

Alla Bastert-Tkachenko came into contact with dance sport early in her life. At the age of 6 she took her first steps towards becoming a master dancer in a children’s group. She collected several championship titles at the Russian championships for children, juniors and youth. It was obvious that Alla started studying dance pedagogy at the age of 16, which she graduated in 1994 with a diploma. 1994 was an eventful year, she became Eastern European Champion in standard dances and then met her future dance partner Dirk Bastert, whom she also married in 1997. From 1998 to 2002 both danced for Russia and during this time became Russian Amateur Champion and fourth in the world championship. At the peak of her amateur career, she made the switch to the professional camp by winning the 1999 World Cup. Here she was able to immediately build on further successes. Russian champion of professionals over 10 dances, Russian runner- up in standard dances, bronze medal at the European Championships and 6th at the World Championships. In addition to her successful dance career, Alla Bastert- Tkachenko completed distance learning at the State University of Moscow for Design and Technology from 1996- 2002, which she completed as a graduate engineer/designer. In 2002, the couple switched to the German federation and from then on represented Germany in international tournaments. She became a serial winner at German championships, won the title 5 times among the professionals and was represented in the finals at world and European championships several times.

In 2006, Alla Bastert-Tkachenko made the decision to fully pursue her work as an international trainer and withdrew from active competitive sport. The list of previous successes as a coach is long. She was able to form 35 German championship titles, 203 West German champions, vice world champions, European champions and World Cup winners. In 2013 she received the DTP Trainer Award. She was able to lay the foundation for success in many clubs, but her name is most associated with the Art of Dance Cologne, which she has been running as sports director for 17 years and with which she won the 2009 prize “Das Grüne Band”. Alla Bastert-Tkachenko has been the managing director of Dance Stars Wuppertal since 2020.

Alla Bastert-Tkachenko is also in action as an adjudicator. For the DTV she judged several German championships. The WDC license was awarded to her in 2006 based on her results as an active athlete. In the world association, she has already judged world championships. Alla Bastert- Tkachenko is judging for the World Dance Organization (WDO) tournaments since 2022. She is a founding member of the German Dance Organization (GDO).

In 2006 she was chief choreographer on the RTL dance show “Let’s Dance” and trained the moderators Hape Kerkeling and Nazan Eckes. As in the previous shows, she also danced in the second season in the trailer of the show and, as a dance choreographer/trainer, coached the celebrities for special shows.

In 2011 and 2012, Alla Bastert-Tkachenko worked as chief choreographer and trainer for the RTL docu-soap “Alles was zählt”.
In September 2015 she was commissioned to train the couple Jolina Drews and Marc Aurel Zeeb within the RTL dance show “Stepping Out”. With great success. Under her leadership, the couple finished second.

In 2003, Alla Bastert-Tkachenko was accepted into the VSO (athletes club for organ donation).

After 8 years with the amateurs, I switched to the professionals in 1985. There I was in 1986 in the final of the German championship over 10 dances. In 1986, 1987, 1988 and 1989 in the final of the German Championship in Latin-American dances.

In addition, me and my partner were a multiple finalist at the French Open, Norwegian Open, German Open and in the semi-finals of the British Open in the Rising Star Event. Also in 1988 we were semi-finalist of the European Professional Latin Championship.
