Pilates / Ballet / Contemporary Dance Instruction



Overview / Pre Ballet and Creative Movement / Ballet / Contemporary / Pilates

Ms. Perry's classes draw on her own training in the Cecchetti method at Canada's National Ballet School,
and her experience on the faculty of Arts Umbrella under the direction of Artemis Gordon. Her teaching
has also been influenced by such teachers as David Howard, Francis Patrelle, Zvi Gotheiner, and the
faculties of Ballet Academy East and the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Classes focus on healthy
alignment and initiation, musicality, and movement quality. Ballet classes are offered to students of all
ages and levels.

Pre-Professional: Sabra has taught pre-professional dancers at Arts Umbrella, Ballet Academy East in
New York, The School of the Garden State Ballet, and for the Complexions Contemporary Ballet Intensives.
She has also been a guest teacher at the Parksville Ballet School, The Alabama Dance Theater, and Helix
Dance Theatre.

Professional: Ms. Perry has taught company classes for Complexions Contemporary Ballet and Ballet BC,
and as guest teacher for Laguna Dance Festival and Random Dance.

Adult Students and Dance Lovers: Sabra offers classes that are accessible to adults of all ages and levels.
Classical technique is explained and broken down for the adult student, and exercises in the center have even
beginners dancing in their first class.

"Sabra is very sensitive to the needs of professional dancers, knowing when to push and when to let up.
She has a sharp eye in technical corrections and also helps the dancer understand how these adjustments
further their individual artistry. I always look forward to Sabra teaching our company class."
