Sarah is a Performing Artist who trained as a dancer and then took dance to children and young people through stories told through dance.

Now this has changed around, and Sarah just tells the stories, but sometimes the need to dance sneaks in. So be careful because as you talk one word leads to another and if you are not careful you find a story has been made.

There is something so essential and comforting about sitting down and being told a story. Storytelling is as old as the human race. It is the library, the store cupboard, of our oldest memories, knowledge, understanding and explanation. We all tell stories, but the storyteller takes us with them to another world where many things can and do happen. This tradition of the oral explanation, the telling of the tale, can be so simple but also so satisfying.

Sarah particularly loves the folk tales of Japan, tales from Iceland and tales of adventurous women from around the world. The story is ready, the teller is waiting and we just need the audience to take a seat.
