Chookas Sarah

DirtyFeet Director and Dancer Sarah Fiddaman has joined Tasdance in Launceston again in 2010. She is engaged as a Teacher/Choreographer for an Education Program as well as a Dancer for the Company's main season, Heart Matters.

Sarah is fortunate to be working with renowned Choreographers Graeme Murphy and Chrissie Parrott and with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra for the season.

Sarah launched her contemporary dance career with DirtyFeet and credits her success to the working experience gained from DirtyFeet projects over the years: "I wouldn't have been able to make the cross over from ballet to contemporary without DirtyFeet, and I wouldn’t have had the professional experience necessary to join a company like Tasdance.”

A NOT-FOR-PROFIT DANCE ORGANISATION SUPPORTING EARLY CAREER DANCERS, CHOREOGRAPHERS AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH AND WITHOUT DISABILITY.
