Due to her highly community-based dance background, Sara appreciates the value of using social dancing as a means to bring people together and connect on a deep level. Specializing in teaching new students, wedding couples, and special populations (such as the elderly and disabled), Sara has an all-inclusive attitude and prides herself on being able to teach ANYONE to dance!

Sara has degrees in Dance and Psychology from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY and is interested in integrating her studies by finding the connections between the body and mind. Some of her most recent projects include a study on the cognitive and physical benefits of ballroom dancing for Alzheimer’s patients, and teaching a physically integrated dance class for dancers with disabilities. She is a firm believer in the saying “If you will it, it is no dream.”
