It gives me a lot of energy!

This course is great! Even if I knew already all the moves I learned how to do them perfectly, I am not saying that I'm doing them perfectly yet :) but thanks for all this details and tricks. I'm gonna work on them again and again. I film myself on the choreographies, and I laugh a lot! Thank you for your smile, it's so inspiring, it gives me a lot of energy. I just started world of kicks, very challenging! See you on sunday!

I will be a member forever

I will be a member forever. Ksenia is truly the best dance teacher I've ever had. I've learned so much and I can feel in my dancing how my musicality is improving. I've also learned a lot more about jazz music and have been inspired by Ksenia to read several books about jazz and jazz history. This is such a fun learning adventure with Ksenia. I never want to stop being her student.

The best online course so far!

As a dance teacher (International Ballroom) I can only recommend Ksenia’s online course! It is well structured, following a consistent methodology suitable for both beginners and advanced dancers. The cherry on top is that Ksenia’s positive vibes are contagious and will definitely brighten your day!

Lessons are very detailed

I was always very sceptical about learning to dance using online materials, but Ksenia's lessons are very detailed, well thought and built, so I feel that solo jazz has become accessible to me. I think she feels by intuition how many times to repeat some stuff to be accessible for the learner, her videos have a high level of practicality which I describe as top quality. I am now hesitating to continue with Secrets of Improvisation or Charleston. Thank you, Ksenia, it is amazing! ;)

Transmits the spirit of the dance

Ksenia's online school is carefully designed to take each beginner Jazz solo dancer by the hand and joyfully lead them through every stage of learning, right up to the most advanced levels. Ksenia not only explains the steps, but transmits the spirit of the dance in such a tangible and delightful manner....her enthusiasm is contagious. The website also has a whole section on the history of the dance which is fascinating, with links to videos of its creators, and she has made the most amazing playlists to practice to. I have still to discover so much, but have loved every bit of what I've seen so far.

The Teacher I've Been Waiting For

I've been taking Lindy Hop lessons for 20 years, and Ksenia offers a deeper knowledge of the dance than I've ever gotten anywhere else.When she explains something -- anything -- she goes into such depth, that even if it's something you've had explained a hundred times before, you'll hear things you've never heard before, and you'll understand it afresh.I especially love that she emphasizes technique with everything she says, so whatever she's teaching, steps, choreography, whatever, you learn how to do it the right way, AND you can always apply that technique to everything else you do.

Thank you!

Ksenia's course is top of the art. She breaks down every move and anticipates every question you might have. After going through jazz 101 I feel I can finally count to music and catch the 8th, after 4 years of half guessing and following others. Thank you! Keep up the good work!
