Aleksandra "Ola" Jordan (née Grabowska; born September 30, 1982) is a professional Latin dance specialist best known for her appearances on the British TV show Strictly Come Dancing. After winning a championship event in her native Poland, Ola moved to England and began a new partnership with James Jordan.
Jordan born in Poland, in a small town called Legionowo (near Warsaw). She lived there until she came to England at age 17. Jordan's mother is called Janina and her father is called Gariusz. She has one older sister, Monika, who is a pharmacist.
Jordan has been dancing since the age of twelve when her school advertised for a dance club. Before dancing with James Jordan, she had danced with Przemek Lowicki in Poland. She won Poland’s Open Championships in 1999 and went on to take 12th place in the following year’s World Championships.
Jordan split from her dance partner shortly after the World Championships, and was in the process of looking for a new partner when James Jordan phoned her and asked if he could come to Poland and try-out to be her partner. So, in March 2000, James arrived in Poland and they matched perfectly. In April 2000, Jordan moved to England.
They started to compete together for a couple of years, and after getting married in (October 12, 2003), moved to Hong Kong. They first took part in Strictly Come Dancing in Series 4.
The first recorded dance by Ola Grabowska and James Jordan as a partnership was in the Dutch Open in 2000, though they did not turn professional until 2003. The couple withdrew for a while to teach Latin American dancing in Hong Kong, though they turned professional again in 2005, after missing competing. In May 2006, the couple came second in the Blackpool Professional Rising Stars Latin event, and in November they came third in the British Championships for Professional Latin.
