SARAH HORNE / RAHDANCEWORKS

 
Sarah Horne grew up in St. Croix, USVI and founded RahDanceWorks in 2011 so that she could combine her artistic passions with her interest in community development. Considering herself a “Third Culture Kid,” someone who was raised in a culture outside of their parents’ culture, her education came in many forms because of her non-traditional upbringing. Moving from country to country allowed an exposure to different movement lifestyles and has continued to inform her artistic voice.  Her formal dance training started at age sixteen while living in Bangkok, Thailand and her passion for choreography began at SUNY Brockport while completing her BFA in Dance. She developed and showcased several works while a student there, establishing a deep love for the creative process. After attending Impulstanz in Vienna, Austria, she grew another love – arts administration – and started volunteering for the dance department in an administrative capacity to help coordinate their dance festivals, performances, and events. After graduating, she continued her education at NYU with a Master’s Degree in Performing Arts Administration. Sarah’s performance credits include works by Anne Burnidge, Bill Evans, Kelly Kavanaugh, Jostle, and Juanita Suarez. Since graduating NYU in 2011, she founded RahDance, teaches creative aging dance classes in the Bronx, and works at New York City Ballet and Cadenza.
RahDanceWorks was founded in 2011 with the mission to encourage positive connections through movement and choreographic presentation. We choreograph and curate shows, promote new work from local and international artists, build community programs, and blog about dance all over the world. Our curiosity in finding out what moves people is the catalyst behind our movement and curations. The company was built on three pillars: Curating, Choreography, and Community.
