As a Teaching Artist, I’ve been working with youth ages 5-25 for over a decade.  Bringing art, dancing, free form movement, and mindfulness meditation into schools, after school programs, summer camps, and conferences continues to be a great joy to me.

In 2008, I began Salsa for the Soul, a business I created to utilize the art of Latin partner dancing as a tool for healing in personal relationships: both within ourselves and in our relationships with others.

Based on the idea that “salsa is a metaphor for life,” I realized in my own personal growth and developmental journey how much I’d learned, healed, and transformed through the art and language of Latin partner dancing.

This is what I want to share with you through a Salsa for Life workshop.

Salsa for Life is designed to facilitate:

  • Greater self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem,
  • Connection with self, life and others
  • Deeper levels of trust in yourself and your abilities
  • Confidence in relationships
  • Comfort in and with the body
  • Clarity in assuming and identifying responsibilities and roles in a relationship
  • Encouraging a fun and healthy activity, while learning some thing new and challenging

Working with kids and adults in the art of Salsa partner dancing is a dream come true.

10 youth educators filled out surveys from a session in Salsa for Life, which I facilitated at the annual Young Audiences of W.N.Y. Patricia Cotsen Arts Abilities Conference in November of 2013.

Of those 10:

100% felt they acquired new and important information

100% felt it affirmed what they were already doing

90% felt they acquired new insights that will help them improve their practice

30% felt it supported common core

SOUND-BYTES:

“It was more than dancing.”

“I appreciate the great instructor.”

“I found new experiences and opportunities for not only my students but for my staff and my self.”

“I teach pre-K, they love to dance!”

“I found an awesome, dynamic person who opened my mind to a new offering for our students.”

“I appreciate this teacher, Sarah.  She’s incredible and an excellent communicator/teacher.”
