Intermediate Adult/Teen Ballet

Sarah Lozoff trained at Miami Conservatory (now Thomas Armour Youth Ballet), under Thomas Armour, Robert Pike, Ruth Wiesen, and Nancy Raffa. At the nationally renowned, New World School of the Arts, she studied with Judith Newman, Gerri Houlihan, Peter London and many others. Professionally, Sarah danced soloist and principal roles with Ballet Rosario Suarez, directed by Cuban prima ballerina, Rosario "Charin" Suarez. Over two decades, she has taught nationally in conservatories, public schools, and outreach programs. Sarah currently guest teaches nationally, teaches in Ashland, Oregon, and is a movement director/choreographer for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.


Class Description: Sarah's class focuses on classical technique, with emphasis on alignment, weight transferring, and musicality. She specializes in breaking things down to basics, so even advanced dancers can better assess habits and tendencies. Her students can enjoy exploring the how and why of what we do in ballet, and how that translates to bigger steps and broader dance forms.
