Alexander Sakharoff
Birth: May 13, 1886, Ukraine
Death: Sep. 25, 1963, Italy

Famous Russian dancer, teacher, and choreographer. One of the most innovative solist dancers of the first decades of the 1900's. He married the German dancer Clotilde von der Planitz (1893-1974), and they had together a very successful career. In his book "Reflections on the Dance and Music," he explained his artistical credo in the following way: "... Clotilde Sakharoff and I did not dance with music or accompanied by music: we danced music. We made the music visual, expressing by means of movements what the composer has expressed by means of sounds... Nothing less than the states of the soul, the impressions, the sensations lived by the composer and transposed to the sound with the help of its art... Our aim was to transpose the sense expressed by the music of the sounds, to the music of the movements." Born in Mariupol (born Zuckermann), Ukraine and died in Siena, Italy.
