    Sarah Mettin


    Sarah Mettin graduated cum laude from SUNY Purchase’s Dance Conservatory in 2011, with additional studies abroad in Rotterdam, Netherlands at Codarts (Rotterdamse Dans Academie). She has had the opportunity to perform in works by many choreographers including Twyla Tharp, Bill T. Jones, Merce Cunningham, Jose Limon, Kate Weare, Kanji Segawa, Jonathan Royse Windham and Arantxa Sagardoy. She is currently dancing with TAKE Dance Company in New York City as well as other freelance artists. She is passionately involved in every aspect of dance, working as a dancer, teacher, choreographer and artistic director. Mettin’s profound interest in choreography led her to create her first full-length work, Talk of Interference, in the Netherlands in 2009. Mettin is currently the resident choreographer/ballet mistress at Metropolitan Ballet Company, which is noted as one of the top seven ballet academies in the United States by Pointe Magazine. Her first work for Metropolitan Ballet Company, Free Standing (2011), won the Regional Dance America Festival Monticello Award- a full scholarship to study under Janis Brenner (The Juilliard School) at the National Choreography Conference (Summer 2011). Her work has been shown in New York since 2008.

    Mettin’s work is all encompassing and has been described from being “highly athletic, [with] strong floor work and volatile partnering” (Matthew Donnell, DIY Dancer), to “robust... with a keen sense of earth bound rhythm” (Nancy Wozny, Dance Hunter) and finally “lyrical, mysterious with an exceptionally expressive performance” (Phillip Gardner, Oberon’s Grove).

    Mettin Movement is a contemporary dance company based out of New York City and Philadelphia. It was founded in 2011 and is fiscally sponsored by New York Live Arts. Mettin Movement exposes the versatility, strength and physicality of aspiring dancers while compromising the boundaries of classical and modern technique to explore the ever-changing subtle emotions in our lives. Mettin Movement has performed in numerous festivals including Variations/Collaborations with Metropolitan Ballet Company, Periapsis Music and Dance, Legros Cultural Arts Women In Dance, Dance Gallery Festival (Houston/NYC), American Dance Guild, The Current Sessions, Young Choreographer’s Festival, DUMBO Dance Festival, APAP at Peridance Capezio Center, Steps Performance Lab, and Hoover Dam Collective. Mettin Movement has held master classes at Peridance Capezio Center and Sam Houston State University.
