ABOUT SARAH

Our Hearts-Beats in Percussion

Born in Montreal, Sarah Louis-Jean is a professional circus artist specialized in Boleadoras. 

 

Boleadoras is a unique rhythmical percussive manipulation ground floor act. Two small balls attached to a cord are swung aroung the body and create percussions while hitting the floor. She has developed her own style and tricks using her dance background.

 Sarah has performed on all continents since the age of 3. Graduated from the National Circus School of Montreal in Canada, she worked for Cirque du Soleil as an Artistic Director and Boleadoras performer as well  as with Céline Dion, Cirque Eloize, Olympic Opening Ceremonies, GOP Hannover, Hansa Theater, KrystallPalast, Best of Broadway, 7 fingers, Dracula's Cabaret (Australia). She appeared on So You Think You Can Dance Canada and various tv shows, movies and commercials. She is also a circus instructor, singer, and actress.

Her artistic approach involves showing the fierceness, manipulation, character work, dance in an intense unique contemporary way through movement and rhythms.
