New General Manager

This week, we give a warm welcome to our new General Manager, Sarah Walsh.

Sarah brings a wealth of experience with her and is looking forward to supporting and working with the dance sector in her new position.
She looks forward to meeting all in DanceHouse and at our online gatherings over the coming weeks.


Sarah previously worked at Waltons New School of Music. She joined the company as an administrator, then as a senior administrator and finally as the school’s assistant director. During her six years at Waltons New School of Music, Sarah was responsible for every aspect of the day to day running of a large and busy school and building, the coordination of the Waltons World Masters Series, and navigating the organisation through extended closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Originally from Co. Mayo, Sarah graduated with a BA in Music and Sociology and a BMus from University College Dublin before moving to Leeds to complete a Masters degree in Music and Management. She has had a passion for music from a young age, with a particular interest in somewhat unusual percussion, joining a handbell ringing choir as a child and a number of Javanese Gamelan ensembles while studying in Dublin and Leeds.
Sarah currently plays with the National Concert Hall Gamelan Orchestra.
