Hello! I'm Sara!

I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.

While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.

In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).

Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.

I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.

Please include your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

Amazing instructor. We had 5 lessons so far and my 5 year old loves it. I sat in one class and Sara is patient but firm all at once. She’s great a structuring the class to keep her attention and it looks like fun!

Sara was an excellent teacher! My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Sara. Sara was very thorough in her explanations and very patient and my daughter learned a lot. Would highly recommend Sara for ballet lessons.

Sara was very nice and went over basic steps and postures thoroughly, correcting mine. I learned some basics I didn't pick up for years of ballet classes and truly appreciate her being so thoughtful and attentive to the details. I also brought questions on certain steps I couldn't master. Sara patiently showed how to start the steps and how to do them better. I already look forward to my second lesson with Sara!

We (my grand daughter and I ) did not know what to expect. I did try to prepare by having the room and computer ready and by making notes about what G needed to review. Sara is an excellent teacher and started with a warm up that included feet. G is a full time gymnast and her Achilles had been tight and sore and this was very beneficial. Sara had G doing basic barre work, then she worked on her musicality, progressions and turns. It provided G with the correction and attention that she cannot receive in her regular ballet class and best of all we were able to stay home. It is great for my grand daughter's situation because she does not have to commute one more time in the week. Visually Sara made corrections as G was doing her movement, that is a testament to Sara's professionalism, expertise and training. It also shows that even a technology deficient grandmother can make this work.
