Don’t know Sarah Barry?
Sarah, an assistant professor of dance at The University of Alabama, is setting a work on Sanspointe this spring for the first time (our ambitious goal is to set that work in 9 hours!). Growing up, Sarah was an “army brat” who never lived anywhere more than 4 years, with the shortest stint being 9 months in one spot. In high school her hair was every color of the rainbow, though not all at once. She married her high school sweetheart and last year they celebrated 10 years in Kauai. She has two lovely children, Aiden who turns 4 in May, and Keslyn who is now 16 months old. Sarah is really good at making Kraft mac n cheese and hot dogs, reading “The Very Busy Spider” by eric carle, and playing chase. She has a Pilates reformer in her house that she paid $50 for and has used approximately twice in the last 3 years (though she has really high hopes for several more uses in 2009). In addition to the kids, husband and reformer, she has a 130 pound dog named Jasper and 2 cats, Simon and Tyrone. Tyrone was named after the 6 fingered man in The Princess Bride (one of Sarah’s all time favorite movies) because he has 6 toes on his front paws. Sarah has an intense love of water. “I think I am deeply influenced in my movement by the freedom and fluidity of water itself and the feelings of being in water (supported by the space around you and able to be “off center” with ease).” By: Shellie Chambers
