"Sally helped increase our entire company’s cultural awareness of the Jewish faith and traditions embedded within the musical. To this end, Sally organised and lead our company in an authentic Sabbath dinner. Not only did this help to bring alive the tenets of the Jewish faith in a very personal way, but it also helped build a strong sense of community."

Production Dates: November, 2014
Working with a cast of 20 performers aged 8 to 80, I served as associate choreographer to Linda Fortunato, a Jeff Award winning choreographer and current Artistic Director of Theatre at the Center.
"When one of the performers suffered an injury, Sally creatively negotiated adjustments that upheld the integrity of the piece."
"She worked with actors in the piece "To Life" to help them accomplish something impressive and technically skilled, despite their lack of experience." - Linda Fortunato, Choreographer
"Sally masterfully lead rehearsals and did an incredible job of specifically guiding, cleaning, and adjusting the choreography. It was wonderful watching her work with this very large cast—coaxing professional level performances out of [mostly] amateur dancers." - Kevin Long, Director
