Meet the Teachers
Balboa and Lindy Hop: Bobby White & Kate Hedin
Both Bobby and Kate are recognized for their engaging teaching —Kate instructs with a thorough, mechanics-based method, while Bobby prefers unique analogies and irk-irk noises. Along with more traditional classes based around moves, variations, and lead/follow technique, Bobby and Kate also enjoy teaching many “alternative education” classes on subjects like partnership, practicing, dancing personality, and developing a unique voice.
Solo Swing/Solo Charleston: Ksenia Parkhatskaya
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.
