Aleksandr (Sasha) Kozin is a dancer, choreographer, performer, theater producer, CI teacher and organizer from Petrozavodsk, Russia. Sasha creates, performs and teaches in Russia and abroad (Finland, Estonia, Norway, France, Ukraine, Belarus, USA etc.)

He started his movement education in the athletics section in 1991. Since then, he’s been gradually acquiring new knowledge in the field of movement, acting and performing. He has studied in-depth Karelian folk dance, music and singing tradition. His interest in traditional dance, on the one hand, and contemporary movement techniques and ideas on the other one, has led him to his unique way of dancing and teaching.

He first met CI in 2013 in the US. Since then he’s been exploring the practice by taking classes, attending CI workshops and festivals as well as organizing them.
