Sarah Burns

Sarah has been dancing for over 17 years. At the age of 2, she began dancing at The Dance Studio in Fairmount where she took recreational classes and learned all styles of dance. In 2009, she then switched to The Movement Box Dance Studio where she fully committed to dance. She was awarded the solo scholarship in June of 2010 and became a member of company as well as the competition team for 9 years. She was successful in groups and solo performances at regional competitions as well as conventions she attended with her team throughout New York State.

In 2014, Sarah auditioned for Tap Into The Network, led by Greg Russell, Ryan Lohoff, and Angela Carter, where she was accepted into a yearly tap convention. This is something she continues to attend which allows her to stay inspired as a dancer but also take away new techniques and perspectives to share with her students. In her last 2 years as a student, she was a class assistant for Amy Baranello and she helped choreograph a tap routine, and also co-choreographed her senior tap solo with the guidance of Katie Williams.

After graduating high school in 2018, Sarah joined the Syracuse Stallions Dance Team directed by Amanda Cammuso and was an active member for 1 season. During this time, she was a professional dancer for the team and performed routines regularly during basketball games with her fellow Lady Stallions. In the beginning of 2020, Sarah joined the crew of “Groove”, a national dance competition where she traveled all across the east coast as an award coordinator at different regional competitions. She was able to experience dance from different parts of the country as well as learn from co-workers based on their different dance experiences. 

Sarah is currently in the “Degree in 3” program at LeMoyne College/Pomeroy School of Nursing where she plans to attain a B.S.N., R.N and become a registered nurse. She believes in the importance of the physical well being of her students as well as the mental and emotional well being. She feels strongly about educating her students on how dance can apply in all aspects of their lives; not just the studio. She works hard to ensure that her students are getting a full circle dance education along with offering her support to instill confidence in their individual abilities. Sarah loves to share her passion for dance with her students and hopes to inspire them and watch their passion grow each year. Sarah currently teaches tap, jazz, and hip hop and cannot wait for a fantastic year with all of our students!
