Sasha is a Brazilian culture lover who, over the last 10 years, has dedicated a lot of her life to travelling and studying in Brazil and its endless array of dance and music. For Sasha, Brazil is a second home.
Originally focusing on Samba No Pe, Brazilian Zouk and Samba de Gafieira, and training extensively in Rio de Janeiro under world famous masters, Sasha’s eyes were BLOWN open when she lived in Pernambuco and trained in Frevo, Maracatu, Ciranda and Coco! Here she gained insight into the depths of the history of Brazilian dance, and how crosses over and entangles itself with other dance styles, many of which she now integrates into her Samba to create her very unique style.
Sasha believes Dance Culture is a holistic conversation and is constantly intrigued by where dance came from and what shapes its evolution. Her passion is performing to live music, educating her students on the roots of Samba and how to find their own unique way of expressing dance.
