From Russia with Love – March 2015

We are sooo excited to be bringing the amazing Ksenia Parkhatskaya to Edinburgh for a weekend of solo authentic jazz, charleston and blues.

Ksenia is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and singer for stage and TV. Her forte is Jazz Dance and Music. With a background in theatre, classical jazz and ballroom, her Swing & Jazz dance style is graceful yet theatrical. She is well known all over the world for her unique Charleston dance style and spectacular dance shows. Fastest feet, rubber legs, snake hips – that’s how people describe Ksenia. Spreading authentic Jazz Era culture Ksenia is well known as an experimenter. Performing with contemporary jazz trios, creating choreographies to bebop she breaks the idea that jazz music after 1940 is non danceable.  As an instructor she has a reputation for her sparkling personality,  inspiring joy for life through dance. Her classes are an ocean of fresh innovative steps, challenging improvisation techniques, strong and subtle body movement work. Ksenia holds solo dancing titles at Swing & Jazz dance events in Europe, and has danced the Charleston on Ukrainian So You Think You Can Dance, Ukraine’s Got Talent.

Check out her performances here and here.
