Alexandra Alhimovich is originally from Minsk in Belarus but moved to Sweden a couple of years ago. Her dance background started with Salsa in 2005 and lead her to become a teacher in 2007. Over the years she has also spent time with West Coast Swing and Tango, but when she met the Lindy Hop in 2009 she got hooked and started to travel to learn more, finally settling in Stockholm which since many years has an established and well-known scene. Her daily work is at swing dance studio Chicago where she teaches as well as other things. Her current work includes competitions and performances with the lindy hop and vernacular jazz. She recently finished first in the Moscow Swing Dance Society Solo Blues competition and the Stockholm Snowball Vernacular Jazz Competition.
