Dancer Says If You Leap, You Will Land

Updated: Jul 2

By Billy Montgomery In the bustling world of entertainment, where lights shimmer and dreams seem just a heartbeat away, there exists a luminary whose vibrancy transcends the stage. Meet Solange Zindzi, affectionately known as "Solo" or by her first name to those close to her. She is an entertainer whose journey from the decks of cruise ships to the literary world is as inspiring as it is captivating.

Born in Amsterdam, Solange's path to success was marked by resilience, determination, and an unwavering commitment to her passion. “The hardest thing for me was convincing everyone around me that this was my purpose.  That pressure was harder for me than me facing the fear of leaving the familiar,” Solange said. “To pursue your life, you have to have an inner dialect that helps you believe in your gut more than the people you trust.” Contrary to possible misconception, her name wasn't plucked from the family tree to match the noted sister of superstar entertainer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter; instead, it's a homage to a beloved relative, her aunt. Embracing her nickname "Solo," she exudes a radiant energy that attracts people, earning her the title of a "glow getter" in the circles she frequents. “People around me vibrate on my light, energy, and shine factor and I am a go-getter.  If you put the mindset with the vibe, you get glow-getter,” Solange said.

Dancing has been Solange's muse since a tender age, and she honed her skills over years of dedicated practice. From the lively decks of cruise ships, where she graced audiences with her artistry for two decades, to the enchanting streets of New York, her journey was one of perpetual growth and exploration. Despite initially yearning for the bustling city life of New York, she discovered that her heart's desires lay in the sprawling entertainment mecca of Los Angeles. This revelation led her to relocate to Germany temporarily before finally settling in Los Angeles in December 2017, where she embarked on a quest to manifest her creative ambitions. Since moving to LA, she has danced with some of the world's most renowned artists, allowing her to travel and perform in different music genres.  But Solange's journey transcends the confines of traditional dance floors. During the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, she unveiled another facet of her multifaceted persona with the release of her book, "Solo Jump." Rooted in the principles that guide her life, this book serves as a beacon of inspiration for those seeking purpose and fulfillment. At its core, "Solo Jump" emphasizes the profound connection between passion and purpose, urging readers to align their pursuits with their innermost desires.

“The book is based upon the rules I live my life by,” Solange said.  “I only set goals when I feel them. When I have the download where I can see this picture is in alignment with who I am, I just go for it.”

For Solange, purpose isn't merely a destination but a compass guiding every facet of existence. Her magnetic presence and unwavering dedication to her craft make her a beacon of inspiration for those navigating their own paths. She champions the idea of listening to one's gut instincts, advocating for the innate wisdom that resides within each individual. Through her book and personal endeavors, she empowers others to embrace their authenticity and pursue their passions with unwavering determination.

Solange's philosophy revolves around embracing deep emotions and experiencing the full range of feelings that come with life. She believes that genuine personal growth and change come from accepting both the positive and negative aspects of life, and she helps others navigate their challenges with grace and resilience.

“Through living my passion, I discovered my purpose because I believe that your purpose is your passion in combination with helping others,” Solange said. “Now I am realizing that I have this new passion in helping people live up to their full potential,” While her love for dance remains undiminished, she has found a new calling in empowering others to discover their true purpose and lead fulfilling lives. Drawing upon the principles outlined in "Solo Jump," she guides individuals towards self-discovery, encouraging them to embark on their own journeys of personal and spiritual growth.

As Solange continues to evolve and expand her horizons, her unwavering commitment to purpose-driven living serves as a testament to the transformative power of passion and perseverance. Whether through her captivating performances on stage or her empowering words on the page, she continues to inspire countless individuals to embrace their authenticity and pursue their dreams with unwavering determination. “There are so many voices in our head and at times you must defy logic.  Your head will always try to find the logic in what you do because your mind is trying to protect you,” Solange said. “However, you have to stay true to yourself and listen to your gut instead of your heart and mind.” In a world often defined by superficiality and fleeting distractions, Solange stands as a beacon of authenticity and purpose. She reminds us of the profound power that lies within each of us to manifest our dreams and live our most fulfilling lives. As she continues to illuminate the paths of those around her, her legacy as a dancer, author, and advocate for purposeful living will undoubtedly endure for generations to come."
