Sandra Hahs

Sandra has been teaching ballet, pointe, pre-pointe, and variations for 17 years. She began studying ballet in Portugal with the Royal Academy of Dance method. During this time, she acted as a teacher’s assistant and helped prepare students for the RAD exams. Sandra later went to study ballet at the Escola Técnica de Profissionais de Bailado (Technical School of Dance Professionals) before joining the Portuguese Companhia Nacional de Bailado (National Company of Ballet). She danced with the company for three years in the corps de ballet as an apprentice, and performed in classical ballets as well as more contemporary works.

Besides teaching ballet at dance studios, she also taught Dance Technique 1 at Valley Christian High School, a private school in San Jose. She’s certified by the American Ballet Theatre ® (ABT) National Training Curriculum from Pre-Primary to Level 7.
When she’s not teaching dance, she loves spending time with her husband and four kids, reading and hanging out with her pet rats Ash and Toni.
