Sarah has attended, performed and trained at Dance Festivals across the country. Sarah focused her studies on the teaching and training of dance technique in modern, jazz, ballet, and performance dance and is a qualified teacher in all styles of dance. Sarah has earned numerous awards for her choreography including the Artistry Award, Excellence in Choreography, Showmanship, and Entertainment Award at area competitions as well as the Outstanding Research Award through Dance for her original piece addressing violence toward women in 2011. She has taught across the country in studios from PA, Los Angeles, NYC, and beyond and had worked under former owner Linda Bell at The Dance Studio CNY for the past 3 years. She was thrilled when given the amazing opportunity to take over the friendly, positive studio Linda had built over the past 38 years! Sarah is passionate about her work and sharing her love of dance with all her students. She is excited to be able to partner with Kathryn and to continue to give children a place to discover their own passion for dance!📷Cred @newmanphotographycny
