Growing up in London Sara found her love for the arts and especially Dance and movement very early on.

Sara formerly studied musical theatre. She then went on to complete her Dance training at Lewisham Collage where she studied ballet, contemporary and jazz technique, as well as taking part in performance opportunities at Tate Modern alongside Leah Anderson. Sara also worked with the Rambert Youth Dance Company where she performed at the Lilian Baylis Theatre in London.

In 2012 Sara went on to work as a professional dancer In Bollywood and has worked on a variety of projects from music videos to television, film & stage. Since then she has worked with numerous immersive theatre companies performing at various venues and festivals across the UK.

After natural progression, Sara began teaching musical theatre and other dance styles in nurseries and schools in and around London.  It was here Sara fell in love with teaching. Sara holds a Level 3 Child Psychology Certificate and this knowledge allows her to teach holistically, the body mind and sprit

A keen traveler, she enjoys singing, yoga, gardening, and meditation and tries to incorporate all her passions into her online classes. With a Montessori inspiired approach, she tries hard to create a free-thinking environment for her students.

Some of Sara's favourite quotes from Dr. Maria Montessori include, "Free the child's potential, and you will transform him/her into the world." For her, this idea resonates as it brings her great joy to be given the opportunity to empower each child in the process of development towards self-actualization and independence. She looks forward to providing her students with an environment that cultivates their desire for a lifetime of learning so that they may indeed transform, both the world and themselves.

"You must find the work that satisfies your spirit."  -Dr. Montessori

Sara - “This work renews my spirit daily and I am honoured to guide the children as they grow.”

The class forms the first anchor point in the Emerald City education district, which is under construction now. Eventually it will offer a Montessorii linked education space, free-form education spaces, and affiliated university spaces with Hub Culture higher education partners.
