Ms. Sara Monts
My name is Sara Monts, and I am the Dance teacher at Nursery Road Elementary School- Arts Magnet. I graduated from Columbia College in 2020 with a degree in Dance Education, along with a K-12 Teaching Certification and a minor in English Literary Studies.
I found my passion for dance and movement early in life. My parents enrolled me in ballet and tap classes at the age of two, and I have continued to study dance over the past twenty years. I was a competitive dancer starting at age six until I graduated high school, and then decided to continue my dance education as a dance major in college. Throughout my dance career, I have performed across South Carolina, the East Coast, and in Europe. I’m professionally trained in the styles of ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, and tap with experience in many other forms.
I believe that all people are dancers and have the potential to experience and create movement. My goal as a dance artist and educator is to share my love of movement with as many people as possible!
