Sarah Lane, principal
A Soloist with American Ballet Theatre, Sarah used her Fellowship to explore new avenues of dance with flamenco lessons in Spain. She also gained a better understanding of choreography and participated in workshops and seminars in arts leadership. As a teenager, Sarah won first place at the North American Ballet Festival in 2000 and 2001 and received the Capezio Class Excellence Award.  In 2002 she received the highest medal in the Junior Division of the Jackson International Ballet Competition.  During that time she also performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. as a presidential scholar in the arts.  Also in 2002, she won the bronze medal at the Youth America Grand Prix Competition and in 2007 she won a Princess Grace Award.  Sarah appeared as a dance double for actor Natalie Portman in the Darren Aronofsky-directed thriller Black Swan. In 2013, she performed in a dance video, On a Grass Field, which made its premiere at the 2014 Chain New York City Film Festival.  The video was created as a Fellowship-funded project of her ABT colleague Eric Tamm.  She is a co-founder of Ballet Mentor, an online mentorship service for dancers.
