Gold: Sarah Shaw

These days Sarah Shaw is teaching dance to the children and, in some cases, the grandkids of some of her original students. Shaw started her venerable studio in 1963, shortly after she graduated from high school. The Sarah Shaw dancers have been a regular part of Pueblo ever since. Shaw provides a variety of dance types. Kids have learned everything from tap, ballet and jazz to Celtic clogging and pompom routines. Shaw said there hasn’t been much teacher turnover at her studio which fosters a friends-for-life environment and leads former students to bring their kids to the school.
