Traditionally danced in Argentina on top of percussion rhythms, Sarah's act blends a mix of manipulation, flexibility, acrobatics, circus and dance movements into the genre like no other.
Boleadoras is a dance where two small plastic balls, attached to strings are swung in different combinations through the air while beating a rhythm in the same time on the floor. Unique and thrilling.
In Argentina, Boleadoras were traditionally used with a throwing technique to catch cattle. Later they also appeared in the folk dance of the Gauchos as a percussion instrument along with the feet and the drums. Simultaneously they give a strong visual image, which supports the energy of the dance.
Having studied at the National Ballet School of Canada, Sarah learned Boleadoras with Cirque du Soleil where she trained for 10 years. She then travelled to Argentina to improve her skills with the top Boleadoras choreographers and teachers in malambo, Boleadoras, bombo (Argentinian drum) and zapateo (feet percussion).
Her previous experiences include professional dance performances for Cirque Du Soleil, a special performance for Celine Dion in the Casino of Montreal and various shows across Festivals, Theatres, and Corporate Events. Sarah can perform her Boleadoras act in a range of costumes, accompanied by a bombo drum player, and is ideal for themed events.
For even more impact, Sarah can perform her act with fire poi, fire levitation stick and fire fans!
