ZSAKIRA DEL COL
Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Zsakira Del Col is a passionate artist with a diligent and enthusiastic work ethic. Dancing from the age of 8, Zsakira grew up training in various styles and has continued to tirelessly advance her craft over the years. This determination lead her to further immerse herself in dance by attending Victoria School of the Arts, where she expanded both her dance and drama education throughout high school. From this, she was given the opportunity to both perform and feature work in the Nextfest Arts Company Festival from 2011-2015. Zsakira later made the move to Toronto, Ontario to attend The Conteur Academy where she refined her strong technical base. During her time at The Academy, she expanded upon her training in Contemporary, Ballet, Pointe, Floor Work, Modern, Partnering, and Improvisation.
Zsakira has been privileged to perform in Christina Digiuseppe’s La Femme Kabarett (Fringe Festival 2018) and work with choreographers and company’s such as Hanna Kiel, Allen Kaeja, Eryn Waltman, Kelly Shaw, Ryan Lee and Creativiva. As a choreographer, her most recent work was a New Media collaboration with Jessie Lee titled Silva, winner of the 2018 Tara Award for Best Experience Piece. Zsakira’s love for dance is carried over into the passion she has for teaching and sharing her vast wealth of knowledge with the students.
