Instructor - Sarah Mann
Sarah Mann started taking dance class when she was three years old. Around the age of 8 or 9 she found that ballet was the type of dance that she was truly passionate about. To Sarah, tap and jazz weren’t as exciting anymore, so she decided to take all the ballet classes she could and eventually made it on to pointe.
When Sarah left for college, she decided that ballet was something that she would have to continue, it was part of her soul. She danced under the direction of Pamela McCray and Shanda Hanson with the Staunton Academy of Ballet. AV Dance Studio '81 was where Sarah took her first dance class. With the exception of SAB and Masters classes, it is the only studio she has danced with.
When not in the dance studio…Sarah earned her B.A. in communication from Mary Baldwin University, in Virginia and worked in Washington, DC upon graduation. In 2010 she moved back to AV where she began working for a member of the State Legislature. In 2017 she earned her M.A. in communication from Johns Hopkins University. She is currently the Director of Public Relations and Philanthropy for a local charter school in Palmdale.
