Sarah Horne, Artistic Director
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 and works at New York City Ballet.
