"I've danced my way throughout this life. I believe that movement is life and strive to bend my body creatively each day. I began my professional dance training as a freshman in college after falling in love with the storytelling style of Modern Dance. I earned a Dance Minor and group fitness certification through Eastern Kentucky University in 2008 and taught dance and gymnastics to children at The Little Gym after graduation. I also received my Bachelors of Science in Occupational Science, which provides me with extensive knowledge in anatomy, kinesiology, injury prevention, and movement modifications. In 2010, I sustained a spinal cord injury, putting a momentary pause on my dance career. Thankfully, aerial arts and pole fitness reopened the door to dance and movement for me in 2012, an unexpected gift which I will be forever grateful for. After completely immersing myself in the aerial world, I began teaching pole and aerial dance at Onyx Pole and Aerial Fitness in Sandy, Utah. During the summer of 2015, I made good on a promise to obtain my 200-HR yoga teacher training through Yoga Assets, under the guidance of Denise Druce. I have gained an indescribable amount of physical, spiritual, emotional and personal strength through these art forms. As an instructor I aim to pay-forward all of the inspiration and empowerment of those who came before me. I will encourage the individuals who walk into my classes to leave fear behind them so they can move forward with power and grace; so they too can reach a place of unconditional acceptance, wonder and love for what their bodies can do. With the help of the fabulous instructors at The Moxy Movement, I will push myself to be a role model for our community and do whatever it takes to provide the safest and most encouraging classes in the dance, circus, yoga and aerial industries "
"The intention of this workshop is to change your perspective about an object you use daily: The Chair. Join Sarah Child of The Moxy Movement in this workshop where she'll be sharing the basics of AcroChair and illusionistic flexibility. A folding chair is a great prop to learn new balances, inverts and bodily control; all skills that will translate to your Asana practice. After this fun experience, you'll never be able to simply sit down in a chair again! "
