Pulling from both her base in the Vaganova style and diverse artistic experience as a professional ballerina throughout Europe, Sara’s ballet class focuses on inviting greater freedom, awareness, and expansion through a grounding in dynamic alignment.
This class will build stamina and use the coordination and articulation of classical ballet to explore the expressive interconnections of the body. Following the structure of a traditional barre and center, combinations will be adaptable to different spaces.
This is an advanced class suitable for professionals, but all levels are welcome.

Sara Ezzell is an American/Cypriot freelance dancer and choreographer, based in Hamburg, Germany.
Originally hailing from Minnesota, she began her training at the age of 6 with the Classical Ballet Academy of Minnesota, working with Andrew and Cheryl Rist until the age of 15. She completed her training with Ellison Ballet in New York City, receiving a diploma in Vaganova Technique, before beginning her professional career in Russia premiering Giselle in the title role at age 19.
She has danced professionally with the Saint Petersburg Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, Bundesjugendballett, and Hamburg Ballet, and her choreography has been performed professionally throughout Germany to critical acclaim. In 2019, she was selected by John Neumeier to represent Hamburg Ballet in the Erik Bruhn Prize (alongside partner Matias Oberlin) in Toronto, Canada, where Kristian Lever’s original creation on her was awarded best choreography.
Notable projects as a freelancer include creating two full-length productions (2019 & 2020) at the Non-Profit Globe Gallery Grabowsee Festival in Berlin, and performing Jessica Nupen’s solo and premiere “Spheres and Disruption” at the Hamburg Deichtorhallen, in collaboration with William Kentridge’s exhibition, “Why Should I Hesitate: Putting Drawings to Work.” (2020).
Sara enjoys creating interdisciplinary work in unusual spaces, combining social initiatives with dance, and sharing her diverse experience with the next generation.
