Sarah DiPasquale PT, DPT, is thrilled to be recently appointed to Assistant Professor after joining the dance faculty as a lecturer in 2008. Sarah earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Sage Graduate School and a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Syracuse University. As a dancer, she trained at The Center for Ballet and Dance Arts (Syracuse, NY), the Boston Conservatory, and danced professionally with the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company.

Sarah’s performance career ended early due to injury and now focuses her passion for dance into educating others on injury prevention and effective injury management. Currently at work investigating the physical and emotional effects of dance on people with developmental disabilities, she is also a strong advocate for integrative dance and the use of movement in all forms of educational practice.

Sarah has recently published work in Performance Enhancement & Health, Medical Problems of Performing Artists, and has presented her research at the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science Conferences (IADMS) and the American Physical Therapy Association National Convention. Sarah manages the Skidmore Dance Injury Triage Program and teaches Anatomy for Dancers, Dance Conditioning, Integrative Wellness, Kinetic Anatomy, alongside classical Ballet and Modern techniques.
