Sara is passionate about ballet and dedicated to helping students achieve their dreams, whatever they may be. A never-ending drive to provide the best possible instruction means she is always increasing her knowledge, improving her skills, and refining her approach to training dancers.
On a broader level, her goal is for every student to develop self-confidence, demonstrate respect, appreciate their art form, and discover their ability to improve through intelligent, focused practice!
A registered Teacher of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), Sara grew up in Kamloops where she began dancing with Regina Bittner-Rothbart. Further study in the Lower Mainland led to in-depth training in all the RAD vocational levels with Heather McBride. Sara is also a UBC graduate (B.Sc. Chemistry), and holds the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA) and Certified Financial Planner designations. Teacher certifications in Acro (through Acrobatic Arts) and C-I Training™ (a system which incorporates conditioning exercises as well as visualization and imagery work) round out Sara’s qualifications.
