Sara is a visual and performing artist based in San Antonio, Texas. In nearly two decades of dedication to Middle Eastern dance, she has developed her signature style characterized by a curvilinear fluidity and soulful expression.
Sara did not become interested in dance until 2003 when she was looking for a new form of exercise. After learning a few basic steps from videos, she pursued formal training in Middle Eastern Dance with master instructor Karen Barbee Adkisson of Karavan Studios in 2004. Today Sara continues to study with Karen and many other world renowned Middle Eastern Dance professionals. She can be found performing weekly as one of the principal dancers at Mina and Dimi’s Greek House and with Karavan Studio.
