Our Founder

Sarah Evans (RAD RTS) is a dance crazy, music loving, yoga practicing mother of one who brings with her fifteen years of experience as a dance teacher and choreographer. Sarah underwent her full-time dance training at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), prior to completing studies at Sydney Theatre School, attaining a degree in Performance Studies from the University of Sydney and achieving her Certificate of Ballet Teaching Studies from the Royal Academy of Dance. She has extensive performance experience, teaching credentials and numerous choreography accolades, but more importantly, Sarah adores children and thrives upon accompanying them on their journey as dancers and young individuals. She aims to make each and every one of her students feel valued and takes time to understand their individual needs and dance aspirations.

Due to an injury in her own dance career, Sarah is very focused on implementing safe dance practices, offering dance specific conditioning classes and ensuring students have a sound awareness of their bodies. She understands the difficulties of managing injury as a young dancer and feels strongly about offering support and assisting the rehabilitation process should an injury occur.

Sarah is always thinking outside the box and constantly seeking professional development to keep her teaching and choreography practices up to date and to provide her students with the very best training. Sarah hopes that everyone who enters the Laneway Dance studio will leave feeling inspired and motivated to chase their dreams.
