SBD has given me the opportunity to express myself through dance as well as collaborate with an entire room full of artistic and driven individuals under the direction of the original and brilliant Sarah Berges.

As a dancer-choreographer I love working with SBD. Because Sarah invites me to contribute to the creation of her pieces I immerse myself 100% and the rehearsal process is both challenging and rewarding.
