He could live in Moscow, Russia, but Sasha Farber is an Australian. Right after his birth on May 9, 1984, the unfortunate Chernobyl nuclear disaster happened. It made his family move to Australia.
And now, Sasha is a Jewish child who grew up in Australia and was raised by his mother (we don’t know her name) and Michael Farber, his father. Sasha does, however, have a sister named Svetlana Shapshal.
Growing up in Australia was good for Sasha. He attended good schools and being a teenager he fell in love with dancing and decided that it was the life he wanted for himself.
Sasha began training, immersing himself in different styles of this art. Twice he became the first during the Australian Youth Latin Championships and was selected to represent the country at the World Latin Championships. Farber was 17 at that time.
Before he won the Australian Youth Latin Championships, Sasha was already an excellent dancer. Later his rising profile and raw talent helped him to get selected as part of the dancers at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He was 16 at the time.
Sasha is more famously known for his role as a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars, but before that, he starred as a troupe member on the show for three seasons before getting promoted to a professional dancer.
Being a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars is a delicate job that requires making celebrities from the narcissistic and ego-driven culture of Hollywood look good on stage. To be a part of the show, it is required that one partner is a good teacher and the other is a dance partner.
So far, Sasha has proven to be one of the best dancers on the show capable of managing this responsibility as shown by his six seasons on the show as a professional dancer, although he was demoted back to troupe member after his first season. That can be described as a learning process. You know, they say “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.
