Sarah Prosper is a Mi’kmaq Womxn from Eskasoni First Nation. Sarah is a young dance artist, choreographer and director, and is currently attending her fourth year with Dalhousie University, where she is taking Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Recreation. She began dancing at age 2 with Susan Gallop’s Cape Breton School of the Arts. With the community success of the NADACA dance program in Eskasoni, Sarah became a fixture in the group and began teaching dance at age 14. Sarah has taught many styles with the help of her mentors and ADAPT training. Today Sarah dances with many groups in the HRM and CBRM. She continues in providing opportunities for children and adults with varying abilities to build their connections with themselves through dance, through reconciliation, and all her relations. Sarah is officially affiliated with Board of Directors of Dance Nova Scotia, Kinetic Dance Studio Board, Dalhousie University Dance Society, East Coast Dance Academy, CEPI Youth, and affiliated in the past with Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources, and Sable Island National Park Reserve. Sarah has hopes and dreams but most of all she hopes to incorporate indigenous creativeness, be that in the dance world or in community health & wellness programs; this way reconciliation continues and grows.
