Sarah Yasmine Marazzi-Sassoon, a Sophomore at Barnard College of Columbia University, is an Italian-American choreographer and dancer pursuing a major of her own design in which she is combining Dance, Evolutionary Biology, and English. She was raised in Paris, France where she trained as a ballet dancer at the Académie Américaine de Danse de Paris. While in Paris, she performed at the Palais des Congrès de Paris and competed in the YAGP Paris ensemble semi-finals. She then moved to San Francisco where she trained at the San Francisco Academy of Ballet and performed at the Palace of Fine Arts and the Cowell Theatre in ballet, contemporary, and neo-classical. She has attended several dance intensives including Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Ruth Page in Chicago. She has choreographed several pieces which were featured in the San Francisco Academy of Ballet’s winter, spring, and summer shows. At Columbia, she has danced at NYLA in Adrienne Truscott’s piece and has choreographed two pieces for CoLab a Performing Arts Collective, as well as danced in CoLab’s split-bill event in Kosta Karkashyan’s “Desire Chromatic”. In her choreography, she is currently exploring the opposition between connection and disconnection, how individuals can depart from and re-enter group formations, as well as the intimacy two dancers on stage can create in juxtaposition with a larger group, toying with how moments of tenderness can be shattered or interrupted. She finds that music, the choice of music, and musicality are extremely important and often dictate the creative process.
