The Heroine’s Journey of Sara Ciprietti

What is the best thing that I love about my work?  
Being choreographer and performer of my own works is one of the most challenging but also satisfying existing jobs.

Creating dance is giving a direct way out to all your thoughts and beliefs, where you choose the exact form.
What is my idea of perfect happiness?
Perfect happiness is just a choice, my idea of it is having my creativity stimulated all the time, getting inputs from this wonderful world and touring with my works. It’s also key for my perfect happiness to share the beauty of life and love with my person  by my side.
