What Inspires Giselle Peacock To Become A Dancer?

One would be shocked to learn what drew Giselle to dancing; it was the accessories used by the dancers that drew Giselle to this art form.

When her parents used to take the lesson, she noticed the dancers wearing lovely and elegant accessories, and she decided to attempt those accessories on Giselle Peacock, who had chosen this art.

When asked why she chose to pursue a career in dancing, she replied:

I started Latin dancing when I was about 10 and started competing worldwide when I was 14 years old. My parents started ballroom lessons and I saw another girl my age there who was wearing high heel shoes. So I knew that if I started lessons my parents would buy me the high heels. It didn’t really have anything to do with dancing at all.

A young girl who was initially drawn to dancing because of the accessories quickly developed a liking for it, and she doesn't waste time winning others over with her dance moves. At the age of 14, she was competing in major Latine dance events all over the world, and she was already a pro in the sport..

Giselle Peacock and Artem Chigvinstev first met at the Blackpool Dance Festival in 2003. Chigvinstev is a Russian native.

Chigvinstev never boarded the aeroplane back to Russia after attending Giselle's wedding in the United States, according to Giselle in a 2010 interview.

Giselle describes her meeting and falling in love with Chigvinstev thus;

We fell hard for each other. Artem didn’t have anywhere to stay, so I took him to my dad’s house in California where we shared a room, and we were inseparable. We started dancing together as partners within weeks of his arrival.

Artem was so impoverished that he didn't have a place to live or enough money to buy his daily necessities. Giselle was the one who helped Atem by buying him food and clothes, as well as financing dancing sessions and other activities.

Giselle was doing all of this because he was slowly falling for Chigvinstev, and she also asked her father to sponsor Artem's work visa, and Giselle's father agreed to fund Artem's work visa daughter and Artem could practice together.

Their friendship grew as they practised together, and their intimacy improved their performance. During this time, the pair began competing together in the United States. Many competitions were won by the duo. Between 2003 and 2005, the duet won five Amateur Latin championships in two years.

The Reason Behind Their Fall Out

One of the classic quotations that everyone should know is "Overnight Success Can Make You Greedy." The same is true for Artem Chigvinstev.

Chigvinstev, who went from zero to hero, couldn't take his success calmly and be preoccupied with his name, fame, money, and success.

Giselle was astounded to witness the change of a sweet, slender Russian lad into one obsessed with fame, success, and money.

After their divorce, the couple auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance (Dancing With The Stars) in 2005.

The Judges praised their chemistry and said it was obvious. Giselle remarked that the intimacy between her and her spouse strengthens and complements their dancing.

Giselle was eliminated from the audition, but her husband Artem Chigvinstev was chosen. Giselle, who thought her husband was a sweet person, begins to notice changes in Artem's body language and behaviour.

Giselle stated in an interview with Daily Mall:

I went home and Artem never came back with me. He disappeared from my life. He stopped taking my calls, and never even went back to my dad’s house to pick up his clothes. In the end, all I could do was leave him a voicemail saying: ‘As you won’t talk to me, I thought I’d let you know that I want a divorce,’

In 2005, the couple filed for divorce.

After being separated from Artem, Giselle stated, "I wonder whether he was a Gold Digger and married her simply for his profit and to obtain the green card."

Artem Chigvinstev received his green card as an official United States citizen in 2014. Artem Chigvinstev is married to WWE superstar Nikki Bella. They have a son, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev, together.

Giselle's Current Relationship Status, Did She Remarry?
