Rhythm, footwork, and groove are emphasized in Sarah’s teaching and choreographic practice in response to her time studying hip hop, house, and tap. Floor work is a staple in her class where flow and speed in and out of the floor is practiced. Experimentation is encouraged by Sarah as a tool to deepen understanding of the form and also to facilitate performance.
