Sarah Reese started dancing when she was 4 years old. Always being the smallest dancer did not stop her from striving for excellence, but encouraged her to keep the beat alive and the class on their toes. With a little Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, and Hip-
Choreography has also played an important part in her dancing routine. Sarah developed special steps for other dancers, according to their abilities, during the musical performances produced by the high school she attended. Her accomplishments do not stop with dancing and choreography as she has continued to search and expand her talents.
Singing began at the age of 3 years old for Sarah, which sparked another interest. She sang every chance she got whether in the car or into the vacuum hose. Her favorite song to sing at that age was, “Walk Away Joe”, although she only knew the words to the chorus. Sarah participated in choir throughout middle school, high school, and college, as well as singing for her church choir. She has taken professional voice lessons for 3 years with Rosanne Lamb and has competed in many vocal competitions for high school in both regional and state, receiving superior ratings each time. She also competed in National Association for Teachers of Singing (NATS), and received 3rd place in her bracket.
Sarah quickly realized that along with singing and dancing, she also loved to act. Her first encounter with acting was “Broadway Nights,” a repertoire of Broadway songs, produced at her high school, where she was able to bring song and dance together with some attitude thrown in. She was then cast for the lead in the musical Miss Saigon as Kim, and the lead for Phantom of the Opera as Christine. The music included the songs “I Still Believe,” “Think of Me,” and “Point of No Return”. Sarah has been cast in back up parts in All that Jazz, Masquerade, and A Chorus Line. Her first professional musical was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat put on by Signature Productions. She was cast as an Egyptian wife along side Miss Melissa who teaches Musical Theater at Kids In Motion.
Sarah loves teaching children and can hardly wait to get their creative minds thinking. She plans to help shape your dancer(s) into the character they would like to become. Her excitement and love for music, dance, and theater is expected to rub off on all the dancers she will have the pleasure of instructing.
