Ksenia Parkhatskaya (Solo jazz):
«My dear friends, I’m delighted to host a solo jazz bootcamp for the 4th time! Every year its been a great, intensive and highly inspiring journey together. Bootcamp it is just because we only have 5h to sculpt a choreography that we, you are going to perform on the grand cabaret night. So it’s hot, it’s intensive, it requires your passion and commitment. Equally it’s very much jazz, exciting and inspiring. So this year await new choreography to Jazz at Lincoln center orchestra masters!
I only can have maximum of 16-20 people for this bootcamp project. Everyone who would love to take part come to the first class and while learning the piece from the choreo I will run a little innocent audition. What will help you in the bootcamp is fast learning, experience in solo jazz and swing, commitment, practice and passion 🙂
