Sarah Hutton (she/her) was born and raised in Hanna, Alberta where she early on discovered her love for movement. She moved to Vancouver in 2013 to pursue her passion for jazz, tap, street dance, and contemporary, joining The Source Dance Company under the direction of Joanne Pesusich. In 2016, she was chosen for a scholarship at EDAM Dance under Peter Bingham, where she studied Contact Improvisation. Her new curiosities led her to continue her training at Modus Operandi Contemporary Training Program, under the direction of Tiffany Tregarthen, David Raymond, and Kate Franklin, graduating from the program in 2020.
She has performed for creators; Paras Terezakis (Kinesis Dance), Shay Kuebler (Radical System Art), Julie-anne Saroyan (Dances for a Small Stage), Kyle Toy, Heather Dotto, and Joanne Pesusich. She is currently an apprentice with Shay Kuebler (Radical System Art).
Throughout the past four years, her choreography has been performed by the training program The Source Dance Company. Most recently, her work was performed at The Dance Centre’s Holiday Party in 2019. Sarah continues to explore her choreographic practice independently and also collaborates with her partner, Aiden Cass.
Sarah loves incorporating her entire dance background in her class material. Her experience with hip hop, tap, and house makes rhythm, groove, musicality and footwork a significant part of her choreographic choices. Sarah’s most recent experience goes deep into many forms of contemporary dance, which has inspired a way of working using experimentation and improvisation. Contemporary and basic break-dance floor work are a staple in the class where flow and speed in and out of the floor are practiced.
Sarah is privileged to live and dance as a guest on the traditional unceded territory of the Coast Salish people.
