About Me

I grew up in a musical family, where everyone played a variety of instruments, and there was equal variety in musical tastes: heavy metal, bluegrass, rock n roll, hip hop, pop, country, inspirational, classical, Celtic, etc. I started learning to play the piano at the age of 5, long before I could reach the foot pedals, and learned to play by ear before I started taking lessons at the age of 10. I started playing guitar in 7th grade. I played keyboard, guitar, and sang in an in-house band, all throughout junior high and high school, took music theory classes in college, and I continue to write, produce , edit, and teach music to this day.
I began dancing at the age of 10, and choreographed my first hip hop dance when I was 12. I was a dance minor at Western Michigan University. I have 10 years of professional experience as a teacher and choreographer, with many dances receiving 1st place national champion awards, and several of my pieces have been nominated for best choreography at national competitions. Currently, I continue to further my professional career as a choreographer and performer, attending workshops and classes from the best in the business several times a year.

About Me

Sara L. began her dance training in Flint, Michigan, at the Flint Institute of Music where she also studied percussion and piano. Starting as a scholarship student trained in the Vagonova ballet technique, modern dance, and jazz under the direction of Karen Mills-Jennings. As a member of the Flint Youth Ballet, Sara attended conferences such as the Regional Midwest performing Marius Petipa's Raymonda and student choreography. Sara then became a member of The Company, an inner city company directed by Joanna Paraschos where she worked with Flint School Systems performing lecture demonstrations. Fostering hopes of International study, Sara spent two summers touring Europe with the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp where she trained and studied with Jefferson Baum, Duncan Noble, Amanda Mckerrow ( ABT Principles) and various International teachers. In 2003, Sara began her educational process by receiving her High School Diploma as a scholarship student from the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Massachusetts. She received her BFA in 2007 at The Boston Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts where she focused on varies styles of dance including African, Ballet and Modern performing works from Jose Limon's The Winged reconstructed by Jennifer Scanlon, and Martha Graham's Primitive Mysteries, which traveled to Hunter College in 2004, and Night Journey reconstructed by Yuriko.

Other performances included Black box work, Choreography Conferences, musicals.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a general overview, as a tutor I believe each student is a universe waiting to be explored so to have a set way of teaching is very limited. I like to take time a develop trust, and respect. This can take as long as a few seconds to a month, but once established it can lead to wonderful things.

As a teacher of the arts, I enjoy working with the students and developing their skills in the craft of pre-professional dance, acting, or singing. It is truly amazing to watch the strong transformation and the increasing security within the students. As young performers, they ideally will look at our interactions as a positive period in their lives. I aspire to better understand how to teach and explain the fundamentals of the field and quickly adapt to developing world of technology. My goal is to blend science, math and traditional theory with the creativity and freedom of art to create a mature environment. I want to facilitate smart, out of the box answers to life choices that will help the student regardless of artistic aspirations.

What I can offer:
I can work with families of students in whatever way you need. For example if you are a student trying to apply for Fine Art summer programs, charter schools, private colleges. I can help from the application process, audition, to post acceptance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently work at Dance Street Studio in Lapeer MI. We can schedule for private lessons there, or at your home , or at a local studio of your choice.
