Sara Fox, 18, Wilmette, Illinois
New Trier High School (Winnetka, Ill.)
Sara began dancing in seventh grade and quickly fell in love. She danced at Gus Giordano Dance School for two years before coming to Extensions. This is Sara's third year at Extensions and second full year as a company member. he joined the company in 2015. She is so grateful for and appreciative of Lizzie's mentorship and guidance throughout these years.
Sara would like to thank Lizzie for always believing in her and for always pushing her to grow beyond what Sara thought was possible for her to achieve. She feels that Lizzie has not only helped her in her performance skills but also feels she is an incredible role model for many everyday life skills, qualities and abilities. This young dancer would also like to thank Lauren, Miranda, the Extensions faculty and company members for providing an amazing home where she can pursue her passion in a warm, supportive and safe environment.
Last summer Sara attended the Point Park International Summer Intensive under a scholarship, a River North Intensive and an Elements Contemporary Ballet Workshop. She thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn from so many amazing artists in the industry.
Sara's second love is working with students who have special needs. She assists in their classrooms three periods every week and helps them train for Special Olympics after school.
