Sarah Young is a Feldenkrais practitioner, dancer, and current director of Earthdance Creative Living Project in Plainfield, Massachusetts. As a performer, Sarah has worked most closely with dance makers Hilary Easton, Steven Koplowitz, Jill Sigman, Ann Robideaux, Alexx Shilling, David Dorfman, and Nancy Stark Smith. She was a member of the Treehouse Shakers, bringing modern dance and storytelling to young audiences, and assisted Dana Salisbury’s Dark Dining Projects. Her own work has been shown at various small venues throughout NYC. She has enjoyed numerous dance festivals and countless Contact Improvisation jams. Her ongoing curiosity of movement and desire to learn from an injury led her to study The Feldenkrais Method. She was a student of the Feldenkrais Practitioners’ Training Program NY5, under the direction of David Zemach-Bersin.
Sarah is a Wisconsin native and studied dance and international arts at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where she received a Ford Foundation Fellowship to study indigenous dance in Zimbabwe. Through these studies, Sarah founded Flying Art, an international exchange of art among youth. From 2008-10, she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco, collaborating to develop women’s weaving associations in the High Atlas Mountains and co-creating Ainabi Tours to share Morocco’s rich culture with others. She has been the director of Earthdance since 2013 and lives in Williamsburg, Massachusetts.
Currently Sarah teaches Feldenkrais classes some Mondays at Earthdance (contact Sarah for more information about her classes), but she is not offering private lessons at this time.
