Taking her movement inspiration from music, Sarah tries to combine trapeze, tightwire, and weird shoulder stuff in unique, dynamic ways to show you something you haven't seen before. Everything she does is infused with a light-hearted pessimism and fun. Her happy place is driving on a sunny day singing loudly. She is a mediocre ukulele player and never late.
