    A native San Franciscan, Sarah got her start tap dancing at convalescent homes at age 8. After being accepted into the intensive program at The Ailey School in New York, she left the Bay Area to pursue dance.

   Sarah was later awarded a scholarship to The Broadway Dance Center in NYC and studied under Madame Darvash and Bill Hastings. This led to work with Jostyn and Yagi Productions, Sapporo Byokai Ballet in Japan, and with Graham protegee Marie Christine Giordano. After traveling the world for many years, she found her dance family once again in S.F.
   Sarah has been a faculty member and 20 year student at the San Francisco Dance Center, where she trained with Ballet Masters Arturo Fernandez and Summer Lee Rhatigan. She has taught interactive movement classes for children at The Belvedere Montessori School and has coached teens preparing for dance auditions to The San Francisco School of the Arts. She also had the pleasure to work with Dance Through Time as a wardrobe assistant, accompanying them on their East Coast tour.

Sarah has also enjoyed designing costumes for City College of San Francisco, Dark Porch Theater, Fou Fou Ha! Liminal Dance Theater, and her own productions. 

She has earned her BA in Communications with a minor in Theatre from San Francisco State University and is currently in their Conflict Resolution & Mediation program.

 

The company is named for her grandmother Judy, grandfather "Larry" and aunt Dee Robillard of London, who devoted their lives to music, theatre, and flying bravely through space.
