Hi! My name is Miss Sara. I have over 20 years of dance training and 9 years of dance instruction experience. I specialize in youth and adult dance instruction in the styles of: tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary and musical theater for beginner to advanced levels. I also have a background in gymnastics, cheerleading and danceline/pom.

As a student, I studied: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, musical theater, bellydancing and gymnastics. Hailing from Minnesota, I was a member of my high school dance team and captain of my high school cheerleading squad. As a teenager, I was involved in the Teacher Assistant program at my dance studio, which is where I found my passion for teaching. As an instructor since 2008, I have taught students ages Preschool to Adult in various styles. I have taught for both dance studios and community programs and I have also instructed both recreational and competitive dance classes.

If you are not wanting to commit to a class, pay studio prices or are not sure if a classroom setting is the best for you or your child, please contact me for private dance lessons offered at your home or Online. I want to give you or your child an introduction dance before you/the parent decide to commit to a studio or program!

I have also choreographed for community musicals and weddings. Please contact me if you are tying the knot and want some ideas for a first dance!

YES I offer WEDDING DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY for couples tying the knot. No dance experience required! All lessons currently offered in San Diego County only.

I provide music for our lessons. I am also able to cut/edit music for an additional fee per song if student is wanting to use it for an audition/performance. For lessons that are just for fun, I will supply the student with music (MP3 or CD) of the routine I teach so you can practice and perform it on your own. All choreography is original and age-appropriate. Dance shoes (ballet, tap, jazz) are encouraged, but not required. Let me know if you have questions about where or how to buy them!

"It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together". I believe this whole-heartedly about myself as a dance instructor. I enjoy sharing my love for dance with others!
