Sonia Ntova is a Greek performer, choreographer and teacher based in Zurich. She has graduated as a contemporary and classical dance teacher/ dancer from Superior Academy of Dance of the Municipality of Thessaloniki. Her background in ballet, acrobatics, contemporary and improvisation, gave her the perspective of combining elements in order to use movement as a communicative tool. Mind and body works as a unity. The mind informs the body and the body can inform the mind. Her movement interest is in the awareness of switching from one principle to the other. How can the mind achieve the guidance of the body? Her artistic interest is to use the body as a social-political, emotional transmitting tool. As a teacher, she teaches ballet principles to teenagers and as a contemporary dance teacher she collaborates as guest teacher with the Superior School of Dance of Thessaloniki and several other studios. As a dancer she has worked on various projects across Europe.
