Sara is an experienced and passionate choreographer, who has been teaching in Massachusetts for well over 20 years. She began dancing at Kasaks School of Dance at age 6, studying jazz and tap, quickly adding acro and ballet to her repertoire. Her love for dance propelled her into assistant teaching, then instructor training, all while simultaneously obtaining her BS in psychology (and minor in music) from Our Lady of The Elms College. Throughout her career, Sara has taught students of all ages, with a concentration in tap, jazz, musical theater and large productions, for which she has received many accolades. Most recently she received the “Tap Sensation” award for Choreography from KAR Dance Competition. Sara is NADAA (National Association of Dance Affiliate Artists) certified, YPAD (Youth Protection Advocates in Dance) certified and gets a recertification as a Dance Instructor each year by CLI Studios in CA. She strives to learn the newest choreography and techniques from highly-esteemed educators from around the globe.
Sara’s professional resume includes dancing in many shows at Riverside Amusement Park in Agawam, MA (currently Six Flags New England). She was also a principal dancer for the “Ray of Elvis” tribute and a highlighted dancer for Frank Hatchett’s “Salute to a Legacy.” Sara also trained with the late great Frank Hatchett. She is also the Assistant Choreographer to Steven Midura at Shows4youproductions.
Sara’s love of dance continues to inspire and motivate her students to not only work hard but also to be creative, expressive storytellers through the art of movement.
