Sarah Wildman is a contemporary dancer and choreographer from Atlanta, Ga. She is a fourth year company member of Zoetic Dance Ensemble. She began her dance training at a young age in Dayton, Oh with the South Dayton Dance Theatre. There she gained opportunities under the pre-professional company to train in various dance techniques. She also had the opportunity to work alongside the acclaimed Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, furthering her modern dance technique. Attending Wright State University and graduating with a B.F.A in Dance, she trained in ballet, modern, jazz, acting, voice, and most particularly, choreography. Creating several student pieces like her senior piece “At The End There Is…”, her eye for arrangement gained recognition with Department Chair and Artistic Director, Stuart McDowell. He would, her senior year, ask her to choreograph his production of “The Phantom of the Opera”. At Wright State she had the opportunity to train with and perform works by artists such as Judd Gibbs, Gina Gardner-Walther, Kiesha Lalama, Jon Lehrer, and William McClellan Jr. After moving to Atlanta, she began broadening her performance work to film and modeling, and has been building her portfolio by taking opportunities like working SAG eligible as a stunt performer on AMC’s “The Walking Dead”. Continuing to build her talents in modern dance, she has performed with various companies such as gloATL and Staibdance, and worked alongside local choreographers such as Mallory Baxley, George Staib, Erik Thurmond, and Leah Boresow. Expanding her choreographic works, she created her piece “Trust” for the inaugural Dance Chance Atlanta in 2013 presented at The Atlanta Ballet. She has presented her works "Transient" at the Going Dutch Festival in Chicago, and “Inside Voices” at ASSEMBLE in Detroit, both choreographed on Zoetic Dance Ensemble. Sarah is very passionate about her involvement with Zoetic, and looks forward to continuing to create art that shares and empowers the female voice.
