Show Host, The Shopping Channel
Tania and Dmytro
Television personality Tania Kolar is a Show Host at The Shopping Channel and former guest host at HSN, QVC U.S. and Ideal World U.K. Tania also served as host of Roger's TV Talk Local Mississauga and Talk Local Brampton, as well as reporting and hosting for First Local News Mississauga, Daytime and Swap Shop amongst others. You can also catch Tania in Juno award-winner George Canyon’s music video Better Be Home Soon.
Self-help junkie and “pay-it- forward” advocate, Tania spends much of her spare time volunteering for non-profit organizations and decided to join Dancing with Mississauga Stars for 2016! With her family in full support, one of Tania’s fondest memories from childhood is dancing with her father to Paul Anka and Elvis. Standing on his feet as he twirled her around her Uncle Joe’s basement, Tania’s partner Dmytro has promised lots of twirling for their gala dance number! For inspiration, Tania has been channeling the elegance and grace of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, while mixing in the passion of Olivia Newton John and John Travolta to spice things up a bit...go, Greased Lightning!
“I feel most rewarded when helping others and being part of Dancing with Mississauga Stars has been the experience of a lifetime, a genuine blessing that I will forever cherish. It is my sincere wish that you all may have the good fortune, opportunity and fulfillment of giving back to your community whether it is through a donation, your time, kind thoughts or kind words,” said Tania.
Tania’s dance instructor is Dmytro.
Dmytro Gurkov began dancing at age six in the Ukraine. He has competed and danced all of his life – winning many titles in the process. He is still an active competitive dancer as a world finalist and leader of the award winning team at Arthur Murray Mississauga.
