Sarah always loved to dance and began attending dance classes at the age of seven. She completed a BA Hons Degree in Dance and Drama at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2001. Whilst in Manchester, she volunteered her teaching skills to the Blue Skies Project in Chorlton working within the area of Mental Health. Sarah also performed in various projects at the Green Rooms and the 2002 Commonwealth Games
After graduating, Sarah taught dance classes with Stagecoach and worked on a project with refugees from Syria as a choreographer. The piece was performed at the Contact Theatre Manchester, in 2003.
In 2016 she completed her training in An Introduction to Dance for Parkinson's and has since set up weekly Dance for Parkinson's classes in the community which run in Winchcombe, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Moreton & Stow.
In 2018 Sarah worked in partnership with Winchcombe Medical Centre on an initiative to deliver a series of movement classes to reach older people within the community.
Sarah says of The Theatre, “I absolutely love having the privilege to work with the Dance 50 participants. What I enjoy best about working at The Theatre is the sense of belonging, community and inclusiveness that seems to flow through the building, its staff and everyone who takes part. There is such a friendly atmosphere here and that is so valuable and utterly priceless to all who walk through these doors!”
