"My choreography is called "Revival" for the reason that it is something absolutely new that is re-born in fusion of jazz traditions. I believe that jazz dance as jazz music has a true spirit of freedom, improvisation, constant innovation. Great to know the roots, the style of the Masters. Greater to create your own unique style. Music after mid 40's is considered to be "non-danceable" or known to actually "kill the dance". Well, music changes and dance can change with it. I wanted to show with my performance that you can dance to bebop, to contemporary jazz, to the bands and trios that are playing jazz live today."

 DREAMING OF HAVING MORE CLASSES WITH YOUR FAVORITE DANCERS?

SWINGIN' WITH THE STARS IS FOR YOU!​

THE SPECIAL GUEST

OF THIS YEAR’S EDITION WILL BE THE GREAT

Ksenia Parkhatskaya

 

Graceful, eccentric, and full of character, Ksenia is one of the most interesting and versatile artists in the jazz and swing world today. Whether she is twisting crazy “cow tail” in Charleston, dancing to be-bop, swinging out in Lindy Hop or singing with orchestras, she imbues everything she does with unique style and artistry. She exploded onto the swing scene at Harlem 2011(Vilnius), in the solo jazz dance battle, and claiming many crowns since, but she has been in training as a professional ballroom dancer since 1996, as an actor, modern jazz dancer since 2005. She has a true mastery over different genres, underpinned by a singer’s understanding of musicality and an historian’s appreciation of authenticity. A true artist, she isn’t afraid to embrace controversial material, and she has been invited to perform her inimitable choreography at the most respected tap, swing and jazz events in Europe.

​If you haven’t followed Ksenia’s performances, you probably missed her choreography called „Revival” to music by Christiana McBride. Go ahead and watch it! It was this performance that inspired this year’s edition of Swingin' With The Stars.
