Please help us in welcoming Sara Rosa to the labarre studios team!
This past weekend she passed her certification and will be leading classes for labarre and we couldn’t be more excited. This San Jose native has a smile that lights up the room and she will be tasked with being one of our key members, as we get ready to open the doors to San Jose’s newest holistic fitness boutique.
Before taking the spotlight as an instructor, Sara Rosa was smack dab in the middle of many spotlights beginning at the young age of 3.
Jazz, tap, ballet and competitive dance were the norm for a decade and a half until Sara enrolled at San Jose State to continue her passion of the performing arts.
While in school, at the young age of 19, she was teaching at a dance studio where she practiced and ultimately, ended up managing the space. From there she found that she could lead and handle a great deal more than she expected. Not long after, Sara married and became a mom of 2 wonderful boys. As time often does, it escaped Sara and she had departed from dance and the discipline for about 8 years. That was when she found barre.
“I simply fell in love with it.” Sara says with a glow.
“Barre is really easy on the body. After dancing for years I had ankle injuries, I had knee injuries, I had hip injuries… all my joints hurt! Barre is something I can do everyday. I’m not completely exhausted when it’s over but I truly feel like its working.”
Because of barre’s ability to help connect a very diverse demographic, Sara was not only able to get back into the workout swing, but found a passion to teach and lead once again. Her passionate return to dance proved to be a shining example what barre can spark inside all who want to explore it.
“What makes a great instructor?” Sara notes, “Someone who is confident, open and some one who listens to people is key. A great instructor molds that feedback into something that works for their guests and that’s what I want to do.”
Sara is going to fit in just fine. Alongside of labarre founder and mom of 3, Lisa Alberino, Sara has found someone similar to her and appreciative of what she brings to the studio.
“Sara is incredible.” Lisa stated. “She’s a great ambassador for the team and I know she will connect with so many different guests who will walk through our front doors. You meet her… you love her. Simple as that.”
That respect was reciprocated from day one.
“Lisa has the type of personality that draws you to her. She’s kind and compassionate and has incredible ideas. I am a better person for being around her.”
Everyone at labarre studios feels the same way about Sara. Welcome aboard!
