Pavel (Pasha) Rukin started dancing Boogie Woogie in 2009, and in 2012 he found the dance called Lindy Hop. Since then, it has become a part of his life.
From 2014-2019, Pavel regularly taught Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz at his home school Moscow Swing Dance Society, with an internship in LiègeBelgium between 2015-2016 (Liège, Brussels). Lately, he has been teaching in Modena, Italy since 2021.
He considers the social component of the dance as the most important and for him it is the main source of inspiration. He likes to watch authentic videos of the swing era as well as listen to jazz records, and he also enjoys sharing his new findings in his classes and DJ sets.
