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.

New Dance School Taking the Stage: Sara Jean Dance Company

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.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
