Sarah Berens

“I love helping people step outside of their comfort zone and experience how invigorating it is to do something they never thought possible.”

Sarah was born and raised in Oregon. Growing up, she loved the outdoors and riding beautiful horses. After taking a Swing dance class at a local community college, Sarah realized that partner dancing shared the same grace and elegance she loved so much about competitive horseback riding; she hasn’t been able to get enough of dancing since! Sarah knows that discipline and practice equate to success. She trusts that dance can change the lives of her students, just as it has changed her own.

Part of what makes Sarah such a wonderful instructor is her focus on style and expression. In her classes, Sarah works hard to provide extra technical pointers and stylistic tips so that every student is challenged no matter what their level. Sarah believes that with dance, her students can accomplish anything. She has faith in the ability of her students and works hard to make sure they improve while enjoying themselves.
