At Nashville Ballet since 2010
As soon as she joined Nashville Ballet's second company, NB2, in 2010, Sarah Cordia became an important part of Nashville Ballet’s Outreach & Education program as well as the company’s regular performance season. As part of NB2, Sarah performed in Swan Lake, Nashville’s Nutcracker, Paul Vasterling’s Carmina Burana, and many outreach performances across the state.
Sarah quickly advanced to an apprentice with Nashville Ballet's main company in 2011, then became a full company member in 2012. Since joining the company, Sarah has performed as Snow Queen in Nashville’s Nutcracker, Beauty Fairy and Diamond Fairy in The Sleeping Beauty, and as one of the four Cygnets in Swan Lake.
Before joining NB2, Sarah trained with Maniya Barredo at Metropolitan Ballet Theatre. She also trained with Christina Hampton, Roscoe Sales, Orlando Molina and John Magnus. While at Metropolitan Ballet Theatre, she earned the Young Artists Merit Scholarship from the National Endowment of the Arts.
When she’s not dancing, Sarah travels around the country as a guest teacher and is studying to earn her bachelor’s degree from Belmont University.
