While the twosome grew up dancing with separate partners, Pashkov needed a new teammate in early 2009, which is when he connected with Karagach. After a 20-minute tryout, the pair had a feeling this was a special partnership. “We knew instantly that we were right for each other,” Karagach, who was 15 at the time, gushed to Dance Sport Info in June 2017.
As a dancing duo, Karagach and Pashkov have won multiple international competitions together before making it to the Qualifiers round of World of Dance season 2. They both joined the cast of DWTS in 2019, with Pashkov teaching Kate Flannery to dance and Karagach performing in the troupe. Karagach received her first celebrity partner — Nelly — the following season.
In addition to working side-by-side on the ABC dancing competition, the choreographers’ romance has continued to blossom since they tied the knot in 2014.
