TEACHING

As an educator and coach, I join physical awareness with detailed text work in pursuit of clear, expressive, and vibrant storytelling. Those who work with me walk away with a clear sense of their text, strong personal connection, physical availability, and the fulfillment of honing their artistic practice.

I offer my curriculum, "Embodied Shakespeare," in a range of settings, from individual coaching to high school workshops. It follows six pillars -- text analysis, structure of the verse, wit and rhetoric, embodied play, historical context, and audience relationship -- and is malleable to fit the needs of any class or organization. It integrates a range of theater modalities, including Linklater Voice, Laban Movement Analysis, and LeCoq, serving both as a building block of Shakespeare training as well as an introduction to other techniques that may inspire participants towards future areas of study.

"Sarah has an intuitive sense of what things to try and how to play with the text. Working with her on Shakespeare is a dream because her experience with text is excellent and she really knows what she’s doing. Her guidance was invaluable, and  I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an acting coach! "

I learn as much from the individuals I teach as they do from me, if not more. This is my guiding principle as I work to recognize my privilege and amplify the voices and experiences of those who have been marginalized by our systemically prejudiced industry. As a beneficiary of the current system, I am committed to confronting injustices within and beyond my theatrical lineage as I consider my role in the future of education in this art form and how I might be of support to BIPOC, queer, body diverse, and neurodivergent artists and students.
