Classical Ballet
      With Sarah Lozoff

"Sarah's ballet 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."  She is available for private lessons.

"Sarah Lozoff (SDC) is a movement director, intimacy choreographer, and ballet instructor based in Ashland, Oregon.
As a second generation dancer, Sarah 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 performed soloist and principal roles with Ballet Rosario Suarez, directed by Cuban prima ballerina, Rosario "Charin" Suarez.
Over two decades, she has taught for companies, conservatory programs, public schools, and outreach programs. In the last several years, she's choreographed and provided movement direction for theatre productions at Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Guthrie Theater, and Mixed Blood Theatre.
