ABOUT SARAH WEBER GALLO

Sarah Weber Gallo is a dancer, dance maker, and educator residing in Hoboken, NJ, where she is Dance Director for Mile Square Theatre.  She is a senior member with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet, where she has been featured in the works of Doug Varone, Mark Dendy, Sean Curran, Benjamin Millepied, Julie Taymor, Graciella Daniele, Andre Serban, Robert Lepage, and Mary Zimmerman, among others.  At Mile Square Theatre, Sarah is resident choreographer, as well as director of the small-but-growing MST Dance Academy and coordinator of after school enrichment dance classes in Hoboken public schools.  Her recent evening-length dance The Magic Hour was lauded as “Stunning” and “Better than Charlie Brown” (by Dance Enthusiast and seven-year-old Jake), respectively.  Her choreography has been presented at Mile Square Theatre, Roulette Intermedium, The Ohio Theatre, Center for Performance Research, Greenspace, La Mama, Indy Convergence, and Art House Productions.  Sarah was the recipient of the 2015 New Work Award at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and her collaborative dance Pigeon Congress represented UWM at the 2014 American College Dance Festival.  She holds an M.F.A. in Dance from UWM and a B.A. in Psychology from Goucher College.  Her daughter, Olivia, is eight-years-old, entering third grade, and just learned how to ride a bike.  Parenthood informs Sarah’s art making; and her current project, Fun Head, is an exploration into the subjective nature of fun and its intersection with youth. The work celebrates effort, excess, risk, messiness, and the courtship dances of birds.
