Master Teaching Artist – Valeria Kochubei

Though Valeria is a native of Ukraine, where she began dancing Lindy Hop in 2011, she became a transplant to Minneapolis in 2015. For the past half-decade, she has worn many Lindy “hats”—student, teacher, choreographer, performer, and competitor. She teaches at Uptown Swing under the direction of Peter Strom and Naomi Uyama. Valeria looks forward to spreading her knowledge and excitement for Lindy Hop to all those around her. She will also be collaborating with SPB Artistic Director, Zoé Emilie Henrot, in creating swing dance inspired ballet choreography for SPB’s new ballet of  Carmen that will be performed in May 2018.
