She graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dance Performance and Choreography. In addition to her degree, Sarah also has her Bronze American style instructor certification by Diane Jarmalow through Fred Astaire, levels 1-4 Zouk instructor certifications through Kim Rottier of Zouk NY, and her intermediate/advanced musicality certification by Carlos da Silva of Rio Dance Studio in Prague.
Sarah’s professional dance career started when she was 17 with freelance jazz and hip-hop work. Major performance credits include appearances on "Showtime at the Apollo" and "Good Morning America," a featured performer in "Witness the Magic"- a local professional magic/dance show, and Encore Musical Theatre's “Club Morocco”. In college, she switched gears with the opportunity to perform in several modern pieces created by well-known, professional choreographers such as Daniel Gwirtzman, Shauna Steele, and Amy Cova. When taking on a position as a Ballroom instructor after graduation, her work and dance focus shifted to the partner dances, bringing about opportunities like for commercial partner-dance work for music videos, celebrity charity events, and more. Sarah has also worked with the Luna Dancers, which is a commercial entertainment dance company that performs full-length shows in the genres of Hip Hop, Jazz, and go-go exclusively for Luna Nightclub, a well-known and award winning dance club in Metro-Detroit.
As her career developed and evolved, Sarah became highly trained and experienced in Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, and Brazilian Zouk, which is now where her focus lies long term. She has had the opportunity to headline as a performer and instructor at many festivals and congresses in North America, Europe & South America in all of the above genres. Sarah has also collected many finalist placements in both social dance & performance-based competitions in most styles she’s worked in professionally including Zouk, Kizomba, Salsa, Bachata, Ballroom, and Cabaret. In 2014, she relocated to Chicago where she has taught at one of the longest standing Latin dance studios in the city, directed 5 trend-setting performance teams, and successfully hosted large scale dance events in the city. In 2019, she opened her own Afro-Latin Dance Studio: Urbanity Dance Chicago. Sarah is the owner, program director, and master instructor for the Zouk & Body Movement curriculums at the studio. In addition to her work at home, she also travels freelance on the weekends, solo or with various partners, performing and teaching Zouk, Kizomba, Bachata and Bachata/Zouk fusion.
Sarah has been recognized for her dynamic choreographies and her ability to apply her classical training to the social dances. She has sustained a healthy career in the Afro-Latin dance industry for almost 10 years now and is respected for her high level of training, education, and success in such a wide variety of dance styles.
