In 2015, after three years practicing Salsa dance as a hobby, Sarafina decided to study at the Higher School of Contemporary and Urban Stage Dance in Zurich. She started to intuitively fuse her collected dance vocabulary of different styles to create her body language. Authenticity forms the core of her expression. Today Sarafina works as a freelance dancer, choreographer and dance teacher and engages in film, commercial and theatre projects. On stage she worked with the companies MEK and Cie. La Ronde and also will be part of the of their new productions in 2023 and 2024. In October 2023 Sarafina will present her first evening piece «Tele(your)vision» at Gessnerallee Zurich.
In Sarafina’s class the dancers are confronted with tasks to experiment with their body language and learn how to create individual and unique execution. In her choreography she combines different Street- Style and Contemporary techniques and seamlessly melt them together. Understanding the anatomy and finding a personal connection to movement should give the dancers the security and strength to express themselves. Musicality, character work and the fusion of different dance styles are the focus points in Sarafina’s lesson. The class is suitable for dancers, who reached an intermediate level in any kind of dance style and are open to try out new concepts.
