Sasha started dancing at the age of 6 at a small dance studio in Western Maine and soon discovered this was her passion. She graduated from Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in 2005. In January 2009 she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Dance and minor in Psychology from Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus in New York City. There she studied with Dana Hash-Campbell, Nathan Trice, Alenka Cizmesija, Ted Levy, and Donna Uchizono among others. While at LIU she found her love for choreography, and her first piece was chosen to be shown at Dance Theater Workshop’s student choreography lab in NYC.
Sasha has spent her summers dancing at various intensives including Parsons Dance Company Summer Intensive in New York, NY, Art Moves Summer Intensive in Norway, ME and Bates Dance Festival in Lewiston, ME. She believes strongly in continuing to learn and grow throughout her entire career.
In May 2010 Sasha earned her license in massage therapy from Spa Tech Institute in Westbrook and continuously incorporates what she learned there into her dance classes. She also practices massage at Revelation Massage in Auburn, ME.
Since moving back to Maine Sasha has become more and more passionate about sharing her love of dance and technique with her students. She has taught in the Oxford Hills Middle School on the Arts team, after school programs, choreographed for and performed in community musicals. She teaches Tap, Modern Jazz/Variant, and Modern/Ballet Technique at Art Moves Dance Studio and performs with Art Moves Dance and L Street Dance Theatre. She is so thankful to have the support from Debi, Art Moves, L Street, and her family to continue to do what she loves!
