About

Sarai Sara is a flamenco & salsa dancer, singer, choreographer and lyricist and is considered one of the pioneers of the salsa movement in Zurich. She contributes to the spread of popular world music and dance arts.

Sara grew up in Switzerland and comes from a traditional and musical immigrant family. From an early age, she devoted herself to various artstic disciplines such as dancing, singing, making music and drawing. In the course of her life, she turned primarily to the art forms flamenco and salsa. "If I would not have had freedom in my childhood to express myself through arts, my performances would't exist today", she states. "My perfomances are based from daily life experiences and descend directly from my family heritage", she continues.

Soon she is asked to join one of the first professional salsa dance schools, the "Salsacademy" in Zurich. At that time the Salsa movement was at its peak.  This opportunity gave her the chance to practice her dance skills to develop and deepen her dance and musical talents. She started her first important public work in the club "el Cubanito", which was not only one of the most renowned music clubs in Zurich but also worldwide. In addition to the main attractions such as "Tropicalismo" and "Soul heat", El Cubanito was the venue for various national and international events, congresses and concerts, in which Sara took part. Sometime later she started working as a professional salsa and flamenco solo and couple dancer in many other music clubs in Switzerland, such as the music club and restaurant "Copacabana" in Zurich. Here she worked as a "Copa Girl", as a performer and animation dancer. She has also worked with other dance schools and participated in various music festivals. This enabled her to get to know many different styles from other cultures. An important step for Sarai Sara is her examination of the role of women in Latin American couple dance; she is committed to the role of women and develops special women's freestyle movements and programs that defend the position of women. Through these experiences and her early beginnings within the Salsa company "Salsa queens" she gets the necessary knowledge to develop her main skills. Her style, however, is strongly influenced by the musical influences and dances of the whole world, so that she was able to give form and shape to her unique style.

Her intensive and meticulous study makes her a kind of complete performer. “Music and dance for me is universal and can’t be categorize: every intent to found the real origin would be lost. What is more important to me is the right transmission that takes place during the performance and the comunication between arts and the audience.“ 

She currently travels throughout the country both as a solo artist and with her dance ensemble. Sara and her  arts troupe “Art Spectacles” perform wherever they have the opportunity and where the original music can merge with modern refined art. Examples are weddings, parties, and festivals. She also initiates and collaborates in various socio-cultural projects in Switzerland and worldwide. When she is not performing or involved in new productions she lives with her family ouside of Zurich. "I have to return to my isolated refuge, because only there I can recreate and live truly the experience of my life which is reflected in my dances and music." While Sara's life is more different from that of her ancestors, something fundamental remains when she studies foreign influences and perfects her performances; this knowledge and adaptation constantly drives her shows to spread and promote the heritage of popular music and dance worldwide.
