Quetzal Santiago

Quetzal (pronounced: ketsal) studied Contemporary Dance in Mexico, specialized in presentation and danced for the Mexico National Contemporary Ballet for five years and realized many individual projects together with other artists.

From 2004 to 2008 she got the Young Artists Grant from her state government and developed diverse coreographic projects which were presented in Switzerland as well as in Mexico. Her coreographies are strongly influenced by the day-to-day life and urban poetry.

In her path of explorations with the body movement, she started to practise yoga long time ago. But it was when she moved to Switzerland that it became an important part of her life.

Quetzal’s classes are a beautiful mix of her different backgrounds and her special energy.
