Young and vibrant, Sasha expresses his affection for living in different countries through a special vision of dance. Born in the United States of America, Sasha was raised in Italy where he had the opportunity to enjoy a strong connection with life in Southern Europe. Since 2011, Sasha has studied classical ballet at the School of the Hamburg Ballet. Under the careful eye of the famous John Neumeier, Sasha started to practice contemporary variations of dance. In 2016, Sasha brought his vision of dance to Switzerland.
“For me dance is the possibility to express an emotion, a situation, an image, or a story through the movements of our body. With its abstraction, dance is yet for me a more concrete and strong way of communication”, Sasha says.
Sometimes we dance for entertainment that makes our audience enjoy beautiful dancing. Another time, it is more to represent something, or connect with audience, making them feel the story you show them. I think concentration, belief, sincerity and the quality of dance are among the main parts of success.
Sasha’s dance is a reflection of his life, filled with joy and excitement, and one cannot help but feel a strong emotional connection through his characters that are expressed on stage.
In March 2017, this talented dancer received the International Award of Merit from artistic director Mauro de Candia during the Gala Tersicore in Italy.
