    Daya Jones

    A Swiss dancer and choreographer, Daya breaks free from compartmentalised dance styles and explores movement that is fluid, spontaneous and frees her femininity. Using hip hop as a foundation, she pulls inspiration for her choreography and artistic direction from street styles such as voguing, krump and underground.

    She toured internationally with Marion Motin’s Swaggers, a French dance company in which she worked with other female dancers with similar mindsets toward dance, freedom of expression and women in hip hop.

    In 2015 Daya launched “sassy concept” – dance classes that are not limited to one specific dance style but instead encourage participants to reconnect with themselves and celebrate their bodies. An ode to femininity, the “sassy concept” classes have evolved into more than just a dance class – women come together as a community free from judgement to explore self-expression, self-confidence and emotion through dance.
