About Sara Fox
Sara Fox was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago. She attended New Trier High School, and graduated from the University of Michigan May 1st 2021 with a BFA in Dance as well as minors in Biology and Gender & Health.
In high school Sara had the privilege of studying under Lizzie Mackenzie at Extensions Dance Studio. She was part of Extensions Dance Company for four years. While at Extensions Sara was able to learn from some of the most amazing choreographers and teachers best including: Seth Robinson, Mike Gosney, Taylor Mitchell, and Jared Baker. Sara had the opportunity to perform at many events around Chicago including Inaside Dance Festival. She cherishes all of the knowledge that she gained from all of her teachers and truly believes that without Lizzie Mackenize, she would not be the artist that she is today.
In college Sara has had the amazing opportunity to work with Shannon Gillen, Jillian Hopper, Ron De Jesus, and Peter Sparling. She has been able to audition for many shows that the department puts on and was even selected to participate in the dance departments annual show held at the Power Center for the Performing Arts during her freshman year. Sara was also elected to be the president of her dance company during her senior year: Cadence Dance Company, a student run and choreographed dance company on campus that she has been a part of for four years. She has also joined the HerCampus team at Michigan where she writes casual, fun articles for women on college campuses. She has thoroughly enjoyed being able to explore the opportunity of writing articles for this organization that showcase her personality and voice. During her senior year Sara was hired by the university to be one of the featured writers for their blog ArtsInk, a weekly blog post featuring the projects and performances that are occurring on campus.
In addition, Sara has been working at a local dance studio in her college town, Ann Arbor. The studio, Dance Theatre Studio, has been a wonderful and welcoming community. This has been Sara's first job as a dance teacher, and she absolutely loves it! She is so grateful to be working in such a great, collaborative, welcoming environment. Sara feels that being a teacher and student has allowed her dancing to vastly improve.
Sara was recently asked to be the creative director of a non-profit organization for women in the arts: We Are Queens. This non-profit was founded by the amazingly driven Tal Kamin, a student, peer, and friend of Sara. This non-profit aims to create a supportive community of women in the arts. A year after its creation it has transformed into so much more than that- it has become a supportive outlet for artists to connect and create with one another. Mentorship relationships with people in the professional world as well as creative collaborative projects is the focal point of this supportive non-profit.
After college Sara is moving to New York City to work as an assistant teacher as she plans to take class and audition in the city that never sleeps!
