Sara Lavan returns to EAST with Local Motion Project, an Alexandria-based organization that strives to elevate dance through education, participation, and observation for people of all ages, to teach kids the art of dance and movement. Dancers will be lead through a creative movement class – rolling, swinging, and twisting through space, as well as learn some fundamentals of modern dance. Through movement explorations they will gain tools to create choreography inspired by works of art. This class inspires its participants to look at art in a new way, work collaboratively with peers, and create something new.

She has presented at NDEO conferences, is a faculty member with the Dance West Virginia Fall Festival, a facilitator of professional development for Arena Stage, has served as a commissioner with the Alexandria Arts Commission, and is a presenter with the Kennedy Center’s CETA program at the REACH.
