Name: Sarah H.
How long have you been dancing with SRL?
Just over 2 years.
How did you get started with Irish dance?
My friend was doing Irish step and I wanted to try it too.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Why?
A baker because I like to bake cakes and cupcakes a lot.
Who do you look up to?
Duff Goldman because he is an amazing baker.
What’s your favorite dance-related memory?
I had a mini show with a friend for her parents where we choreographed our own dance in her basement.
If you were a cartoon character, which one would you be and why?
Tinkerbell because she can fly and tinker.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Why?
To fly because it sounds fun.
What’s your favorite thing about dancing?
I like that Irish dance actually has a beat to listen to unlike some other dance types.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Italian meatballs and garlic bread.
What’s the best advice you can give a new or younger dancer?
To work on technique a little before you just speed it up. Because it might be more fun, but technique is very important and can be hard to correct once you make a bad habit.
