Sara Pijanowski | Western University Kinesiology Student

I am so grateful for my many years spent dancing at DSI. I am lucky to have had so many wonderful people to look up to growing up and am extremely thankful for the amazing memories I made along the way. While I can’t pick just one favourite, I will always miss long Saturday competition rehearsals, rushing to make up Christmas dances, and having team naps on the old futons.  

After graduating from DSI, I moved out East to pursue an education in Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario. I am very lucky that dance has fostered in me such a passion for learning about the body, which has encouraged me to complete my Honors Specialization in Exercise and Fitness Prescription. I continue to take dance classes in university and make movement part of my every day. I know that dancing at DSI taught me so many valuable lessons that I apply every single day, and for that I am eternally grateful. With my degree, I hope to foster the same passion for movement in as many people as possible.
