Has been dancing since the age of 11. She started in ballet and has studied flamenco, ballet folklorico, tap and jazz, and now is learning MiddleEastern dance. She plans to continue performing in all dance venues. Kseniya, expresses her delight in becoming a “Shimmers in the Sand” troupe member and proud to be the youngest performer at the age of 17.
MiddleEastern dance became her passion from listening to music of countries like that of Egypt and Turkey and many others, to the native costuming. Kseniya, feels very connected to belly dance, because it is so familiar to her Grandmother who was a MiddleEastern dancer/performer.
Kseniya, believes belly dancing is one of the most beautiful and expressive dances. Kseniya, plans to continue to pursue her quest in knowing and growing in the art of dance.
Kseniya, aspires to one day compete and perform her craft in other countries!
