Our December #LBItGirl, Sarah!

On tap this month is our December #LBItGirl, Sarah!


What do you do outside of barre?
When not pulsing, I am probably in a dance, pole, or aerial class. My life revolves around movement. Sitting still is not an option. Only time I am found still is when I am catching up on Scandal, HTGAWM, Nashville, & Chicago PD.

Was there an interesting path that led you to teaching at Barre? 

I believe barre helped to save my career actually! After a dance injury where I partial tore my meniscus, I spent 8 weeks doing physical therapy with little improvement. It wasn’t until I found barre that I felt stability back in my knee. All those micro pulses made magic happen for me!

Health enthusiast? Tell us about your diet...vegan? raw? raw til 4? recipes? favorite seasonal dish or smoothie?
My father is a chef. I am physically incapable of saying no to food if I want it, no matter how bad it might be for me. Hence why I work hard at the barre so I can play hard when I dine out. ;-)



You’re splurging...what’s your weakness?
I can’t live without Peanut Butter. It is my “chocolate”. I am always buying specialty flavors such as cinnamon raisin swirl, honey twist, pumpkin spice, etc. My favorite restaurant in NYC is the Peanut Butter Company on 240 Sullivan St. It’s heavenly!

Tell us a secret. 

I don’t like chocolate or coffee. And my father worked in a chocolate factory for the first 8 years of my life! Both tastes like ground dirt to me. I could be in the factory for hours and didn’t care to eat a single piece of chocolate. But you better believe I was always stealing from the secret stash of gummi worms...

One thing on your bucket list.
Drive to the Mall of America in an RV: this has been a childhood dream of mine! Something about it always seemed quintessentially patriotic to me and I am not giving up on the dream.


What’s on your “get amped” playlist?
Anything by Whitney Houston but this is no shock to any of our clients. I am chronically dancing around like a fool when she comes on!

All time favorite movie quote?
“Oh piss on your hat!” - Dottie from A League of their Own or ANY LINE from Drop Dead Gorgeous



High school: love or hate? 
I went to a performing arts magnet program inside a regular old high school. Everyday was a scene out of Glee. I loved it.

Celebrity dinner party: who’s there? 
Walt Disney, Oprah, & Bob Fosse. It’d be a colorful and delight meal with some of the most successful and creative minds who have ever impacted my life. The guest of honor would be my Grandma Rose because I would give anything to have one more meal with the strongest woman I ever knew.

Your last meal: what’s on the menu?
Definitely a pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich. #jerseygirlforever
