New Dance School Taking the Stage: Sara Jean Dance Company

New Dance School Taking the Stage: Sara Jean Dance Company

With the pandemic calming down, local businesses on Long Island are allowed to open, including dance schools. This brand new dance company is ready to share their passion for the art and teach kids how to express themselves through dance.


Twenty-two-year-old, Sara Jean Haas has been in love with dance since she was basically born. At two and half years old she began to dance and not long after that she knew that dance was her passion. She lived in Smithtown, graduated from Smithtown West, and then went on to get her degree at Sacred Heart University. She studied business and danced for their division 1, nationally ranked dance team for four years. She has now come back to her hometown and is ready to use her passion to help others find the same love for dance that she has always had.

At only twenty-two years old, Sara is about to live her dream and own her own dance company.

August 1st will be the grand opening of Sara Jean Dance Company: a dance school for ages 2 and older, for people interested in learning a large variety of styles including kinder combo, ballet, technique/stretch, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, lyrical/contemporary, tap, kickline/pom, and "Off ice Training." There will be recreational classes along with competition classes, differently-abled classes, adult dance, and adult Zumba. For students interested in competing for the Sara Jean Dance Company in group dances, solos, duos, or trios, auditions will be held the week of August 24. Summer programs will also be available starting August for Monday through Fridays which is great for kids who are looking to get active while off of school. The summer programs include morning sessions (9 A.M. to noon) or afternoon sessions (1 P.M. - 4 P.M.) The season will be starting on September 7th, 2020.

The inside of the building is all getting redone and so far looks absolutely beautiful. The dance rooms have tall ceilings, beautiful mirrors covering walls, and floors that are perfect for turning. The large building has lots of potentials to be an amazing studio and it clearly will be.

Sara's fun and caring personality, her strong love for dance, and her knowledge of business management all show that this dance company really is going to be spectacular. Sara is driven to use her love of dance to show people how to gain confidence, how to express themselves, how to love being active, and how to be the best dancer they can be. Sara wants to use this company to create a wonderful family and team, and shape people's lives for the better.

I am looking forward to being a dance instructor at this brand new dance company. I have been dancing for 15 years and have wanted to teach dance since I was little. This school has welcomed me with open arms and I am excited to be a part of the Sara Jean Dance Company family.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.

How To Create A Summer Reading List On Odyssey

Books are the perfect summer companions.

It's officially summer 2020, and yes, we're still in the middle of a global pandemic, which means a lot of your free time this summer is probably going to involve watching Netflix. But you can't take Netflix to the pool or on the beach.

You Can Rent Kevin Jonas' New Jersey Home On Airbnb, Along With All These Other Celeb Pads

If I'm going to be working from home, it's got to be glam.

I'll be honest, I've never been too big into modern pop culture — I'll take "Citizen Kane" or a movie starring Humphrey Bogart over Brad Pitt any day. But I've watched just about every architecture, interior decorating, and home documentary available on the Internet. I lust after a luxurious pool, backsplash, or mountain view as though the more I watch, the more I can manifest my streaming fantasies into a future reality.

Seeing the beautiful homes is one of the reasons I watch The Real Housewives of New York and Beverly Hills. While the women throw drinks in each other's faces, I'm eyeing the Charlotte Perriand lounger behind them. When someone drunkenly falls into a pool, my focus is mostly on the marble finishes lining it.
