Having trained with world’s finest teachers Ksenia has extensive knowledge in choreography, body movement, and technique of Ballroom and Latin dance. She is very experienced in teaching beginner students in a way that is simple and proactive.

It has always been rewarding to see how couples develop their communication through dance and create a stronger bond together as well as realising that dancing is something that connects them in deep and a very special way!

To me the beauty and the joy in dance is in the partnership between a man and a woman, in the desire to move together. This is what I focus on when I teach couples: I encourage gentlemen to lead and ladies to follow. The pleasure of watching the harmony in the movement of a couple after hours of training is incredibly rewarding! I believe that dancing is a great way to have fun together and understand each other better.
