About Class

THURS // 10-11:30am @ The Station 8311 N Denver Ave, Portland, OR 97217 (Our second studio location located across the street from the Wells Fargo parking lot) Dance Lab is an Open Level Contemporary dance class that questions, deepens, and experiments with movement and dance technique. Through both improvisational prompts and guided technique, Dance Lab emphasizes whole bodied movement, expressivity, subtle & dynamic energy, and an integrated approach to well-being. Curiosity, risk-taking, personal voice, and self-development are celebrated! Open Level- dance and/or movement experience is encouraged. Sara Parker is a dance and movement artist who currently teaches, creates, and performs throughout the Portland-area. Formally, she holds an MFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (2015) where she was granted a Graduate Teaching Assistantship and was the recipient of the Dee Winterton Award. Additionally, Sara holds a B.S. in Dance from the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR (2009). These formalized experiences have provided her the ability to integrate thought and experience into action as she engages with dance and movement in the span of her career. Her choreographic work has appeared at New Expressive Works, BodyVox Dance Center, The Headwaters Theatre, Portland Community College, Lane Community College, Portland State University, The Hult Center, Lincoln Performance Hall, Conduit Dance Inc, Northwest Dance Project Studio and Performance Center, Mariott Center for Dance, Mudson, and the Ladies Literary Club, Portland5 at The Brunish, On the Boards, and Portland Center Stage at The Armory. Motivated by creativity, Sara values dance as a radical act of liberating one’s body to more fully engage and connect with the deeper and subtle layers of existence. She is enamored by ‘what comes up’ in the studio, and the relationship between her lived experience and the ‘bigger picture’. The micro and macrocosm. Sara believes that dance is a powerful catalyst for personal and communal revolution and her aim is to make a positive impact through teaching, choreography, and performance.
