In Memory of…

Sara taught countless students at the Saugerties Ballet Center from the late 1980’s through 2016. She showed her students patience, love, and encouragement, yet was tough as nails, demanding that everyone be the best they can be. She touched many, many lives. May we keep her spirit alive in our memories and hearts!

What people are saying about us…

Once again I was smiling deep inside witnessing the Love of Dance emanating from the stage from the littlest ballerina to the oldest dancers.  It is truly evident, the love shared within your dance family.  The respect teacher to student allows for deep respect back, student to teacher, in a time when such things are rare to see.

My thanks for your efforts and integrity, and that of your Clan of teachers.  Quite the tribe you have.  So glad Robin is part of it.
