“A Day in the Life” with Calgary Dancer Sarah Anderson

Sarah Anderson was born and raised in Calgary. She trained there as a classical dancer and was also involved in several performing dance companies. Her dance training included many summer schools in places like Banff, Winnipeg, and New York, as well as an intensive dance week in Brazil. She then completed a couple of years at the contemporary school of Toronto Dance Theatre.

On her return to Calgary, Sarah became heavily involved in circus arts training in aerials and performing for many various events. She even received a grant from the Calgary Arts Development to train in Boulder, Colorado. She eventually went to Victoria to teach that craft there.

She has recently received her Graduate Certificate in Sexual Health from the University of Alberta and has also become a birth doula.

Sarah Anderson now resides with her husband and daughter in Golden, BC where she is embracing motherhood, teaching yoga, dance and hosting regular workshops while growing her family.

Golden, Bc. We live on 40 acres of land just outside of Golden in what’s known as the Blaeberry.
