Sarah Baker, from Clayton, MI, began her dance training at Encore Dance Studio at age 3 and continued training at the studio through high school.

During college, Sarah assisted at Joffrey Ballet's Jazz & Contemporary Summer Intensive, interned with Thodos Dance Chicago, trained at American Dance Festival, and performed in numerous Chapman University dance concerts.
Her choreographic work, Directions of Expectations, received the Outstanding Choreography Award and performed in the MixMatch Dance Festival and with Chapman's Dance Tour in Las Vegas and San Diego. She presented her original research in Pittsburg, PA at the 2015 International Association of Dance Medicine and Science's Annual Conference. She graduated Suma Cum Laude with honors, an Excellence in Choreography Award, and the Donna Cucunato Award-an honor presented to one graduating senior in the Dance Department for outstanding contributions. Sarah is excited and grateful to be a part of Inaside Chicago Dance as a Performing Apprentice!
