Sara Garfinkel

Hi! My name is Sara Garfinkel, and welcome to my website! Peruse as you please and drop me a line, even if it is just to say hello.

I was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, and it will always be considered home. I am a graduate of the Florida State University, where I finished summa cum laude with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I am a fun hybrid of Midwestern and Southern charm… What can I say, I like my tea sweet and my ravioli toasted! When I wasn’t molding the minds of young children, I was fortunate enough to dance professionally with the Tallahassee Ballet Company for four years. I have since ventured out and swapped the pointes for LaDuca’s, and I couldn’t be happier.

When I’m not dancing, singing, and being the happiest girl in the world on a stage somewhere, you can either find me at the gym or snuggling my two overly fluffy bear-sized poodles, Remy and Louis. I have a level-5,000 obsession with my Apple Watch fitness tracking, the day just is not officially complete until all three of those rings are closed. I’ve read and reread Harry Potter more times than I can count, the only relevant broadcasted sport is Cardinals baseball, if I don’t go to bed in a matching pajama set then my life is in shambles, and I feel truly invincible once I have put on a cute outfit and had a good cup of coffee.

I firmly believe that if you love your life, life will love you right back. I try to unapologetically cavort through life throwing kindness, acceptance, positivity, and love around like it is confetti, because the world certainly can never have too much of that. 

have courage and be kind

What's Going on?

I am the new Singer/Dancer on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America ship! I will rehearse in Tampa, FL at Norwegian Creative Studios, then will board the ship in Hawaii on August 17th. I am so excited for this next adventure!
