Marina Mazepa belongs to Ukraine and later moved to Los Angeles a year ago. She was born and raised in a small town named Konotop in Ukraine which doesn’t have many dances or gymnastic classes or related options to pursue with. So, she started taking classes for folk dance instead of her favorite gymnastic moves. When she was in her ninth grade, she was insisted by her dance teacher to join a circus academy in Kyiv, Ukraine which she couldn’t join later because of her family circumstances.
Her family didn’t support her as far as her dancing is concerned. Her family instead wanted her to be a lawyer or something else to support the good livelihood for the whole family. However, her mother agreed on her choice of preceding her career with dance and she made her earn a scholarship and passed the exams. On the other hand, Marina succeeded in her path, passed the exams, and attained a scholarship.
