Sara Pizzi was born and raised in Italy. She began her dance studies with Ballet and Modern, but she soon discovered the world of Hip Hop and Commercial/Urban Dances, where she focused her training throughout her teen years. In Italy, she has performed in concerts, music videos, and has appeared in national TV shows as a dancer. When she was 18 years old, Sara came to New York with a scholarship from the Academy of Steps on Broadway.
After one year of study, Sara joined the Certificate Program at Peridance Capezio Center. Throughout her time in New York, she has had the opportunity to work with International choreographers including Nicholas Palmquist, Julie Magneville, Elisabetta Minutoli, Max Stone, Julia Ehrstrand, and G^2. Sara is a performer with “The Next Stage Project” directed by Marijke Elisaberg and Jana Hicks. She will graduate from the Certificate Program in 2020.
“I feel drawn to Valeria’s work because she empathizes with the needs of freedom and dance as a healing process. She is creating a community of strong women who need a safe place to express their journey, encouraging them how to be independent, how to love and be loved, and how to be powerful enough to be vulnerable".
