Sadie Winer grew up dancing at Helene Joy School of Dance in Middleton, MA. During her time in high school she assisted at the Spirit of Awards and Excel In Motion dance conventions on scholarship. After high school she continued her education at the University of the Arts where she graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in DANCE. Since then she has trained and attended intensives with Pantos Project and Parsons Dance. She has taught throughout Massachusetts for competition teams alongside choreographing groups and solos for many different types of artists. She has trained with and performed in works by Katie Swords-Thurman, Tommie Waheed-Evans, Elisa Clark, Robert Battle, Jesse Zaritt, and Sydney Diamond.

What was your favorite dance accomplishment?
My favorite dance accomplishment was in the Fall of 2021, when I premiered my senior thesis at the University of the Arts. From beginning to end, I was so grateful for the dancers I got to work with and choreograph on. The piece turned out to be so much more than I had originally imagined, or thought was ever possible. Once adding in costumes and lighting… it was wild, magical and athletic. It was a project that I will always cherish!
What is your favorite tv show?
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – I always love anything witchy!
What charity do you support?
My older sister was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes early in my childhood, so the JDRF fund was the first charity I ever participated in as a kid. Every year we would invite friends and family to create our team T-shirts, and go into Boston for the day. It was an event we would all look forward to each year.
