Sarah Lass

Lecturer in Dance



Sarah Lass is a Colorado-raised, Massachusetts-based dancer, choreographer, writer, and teacher. Across modes of creative output, her work explores intersections between embodiment, perception, place, and design, and her research unfolds through a transdisciplinary process of dancemaking and creative writing. Her choreography has been presented and supported by residencies at Basin Arts Center (Lafayette, LA), the School for Contemporary Dance and Thought (Northampton, MA), 10forward (Greenfield, MA), and Triskelion Arts (NY, NY), as well as by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Smith, Marlboro, and Keene State Colleges. As a performer Lass has worked with Bebe Miller, Angie Hauser, Chris Aiken, Bronwen MacArthur, and Xan Burley. Her creative nonfiction and poetry have been published by The Briar Cliff Review, The Good Life Review, Beyond Words International Literary Magazine, and Griffle, and she was recently a finalist for nonfiction prizes with New Ohio Review, the Disquiet International Literary Contest, and Fjords Review. Lass is currently a Lecturer in Dance at Smith and Keene State Colleges, having previously taught dance courses at UL Lafayette, Marlboro, Hampshire, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She received her MFA in Dance from Smith in 2018, and she graduated summa cum laude from Kenyon College in 2013.
