She continues her dance career and can be seen on the Style Network dancing for Kimora Lee Simmons, and for “ENEWS Ciroc the New Year.” She choreographs for National Winning Battle Mountain High School Dance Team and continues to spread her love and passion for dance by volunteering as a dance coach at the WISH Charter school. It is through the cross training for dance that she found her love of Pilates and enjoys teaching the technique to others while watching their bodies transform.
Pilates brought a new dimension and understanding of bodily mechanics that has not only helped Sarah with her dance career, but her every day physical and mental health. She loves how Pilates prevents common injuries for athletes and the strenuous wear and tear we implement on our bodies daily. She loves being able to share these techniques with others and continue to grow as an instructor and share in her love and knowledge of Pilates.
