What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Swing It, Girl!



Ksenia Parkhatskaya

We’ve all seen the remarkable videos which are all over the internet featuring young couples nimbly jumping around, swing dancing . And we’re certainly familiar with the iconic solos by male dancers like Fred Astaire. But here’s something I hadn’t considered – a female swing solo dancer. This is Ksenia Parkhatskaya, one of the current acknowledged champions in women’s modern solo swing dance.

This girl can Charleston like, well, like a motherfucker! (Sorry, but if the tennis shoe fits, wear it!)

Swing It Girl,” by the way, is the name of the Korean dance festival on whose Facebook page I first encountered Parkhatskaya. Their feed has many remarkable dancers in addition to today’s soloist.

And here she is performing to accompaniment by her husband, David Duffy.

And finally, I wanted to show you Ksenia’s versatility!
