Book Private Lesson

Sara is a choreographer, teacher, and dancer based in San Francisco.  She started her professional hip-hop career at sixteen, dancing with Culture Shock S.F. and L.A. and guest performing with independent artists throughout the Bay Area.  While earning her dance degree at Loyola Marymount University, Sara expanded her artistry to include ballet and contemporary, and began a focused re-engagement with salsa and other Latin dances connected to her Puerto Rican heritage.  It was during this time that Sara truly honed in on her passion for choreography and teaching, and the ways in which the intelligence of different dance techniques could cross pollinate for the benefit of the artist.


Today, Sara makes the most out of her diverse dance background by working with dancers of various styles, ages, and abilities in helping them express the best of who they are.  Sara strongly believes in the joy of dance, and is dedicated to fostering a safe and playful space where students can work on sound dance technique while feeling motivated to grow.  When Sara is not bouncing around with her dance students, she is working on choreographic projects, experimenting with dance for film, or running her two small businesses (Basmati Bags and Objects For Art).  Besides dance, Sara is an ardent, 20-year practitioner of Iyengar yoga, and a strong believer in massages and chocolate.
