After successfully auditioning for professional ballet schools internationally she returned home to study arts management and work professionally in the Arts and corporate sectors. When she discovered Xtend Barre Sara was able to realise her dream of combining a passion for dance, Pilates and marketing into what is Xtend Barre Drummoyne, and creating a caring, healthy, and dynamic environment for her guests.
