More About Me

From the depths of Siberia, Ksenia has made her way to Athens, GA and discovered something amazing: Ballroom dance. She quickly came to love it, for it meant teamwork, socializing, problem solving, exercising, and creating something artistic all at the same time. Since then, she has joined the Ballroom Performance Group, competed in the Atlanta Open, taught lessons, and DJed for ballroom events. She is also currently in the Ballroom and Social Dance Club to further her dancing and help others do the same. Her favorite dance is Tango because "it's so spicy and fierce yet, like other smooth dances, it's also very sensitive".
