Sarah (Clara) Houghtelin Koerner, TCRG has been building fun, student based dance and theatre programs here in Arizona for over a decade. Sarah has more than twenty years of competitive Irish Dance experience, and also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance from Arizona State University where she studied ballet and modern dance. It has always been her dream to go beyond the competition with Irish dance and continue to study dance in all of its forms. Sarah joined Ghazaal Beledi in the fall of 2011. Sarah’s love for dance compels her to find new ways to enrich her programs and instill the same love for dance and music in her students. She continues to study ballet, improvisational tribal style bellydance, and plays several musical instruments.
