Sabrina Pipestem

Teacher / Dancer / Workshop Leader

Sabrina started out as one of the young ballroom competitors in the Calgary latin dance scene, at 6 years old. She grew up in a household in which she would watch and learn from her family teaching various styles of art. 

Sabrina has not only competed in the pre-championships of the ten ballroom dances but also in salsa, bachata, and kizomba. She also has a background in circus, ranging from rolla bolla to aerials.

Some of her previous projects include teaching Dominican bachata at the 2017 Ritmo Cuba international dance festival in Cuba, while also learning traditional afro-cuban and rumba. Other projects include partnering up with the Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre and Creoternity Theatre presented in association with Arts Common at the Martha Cohen Theatre to demonstrate the roots of today’s dances in the 2019 production of Unganisha. 

She was then also hired in 2018 to take part in an exploration piece called Hole in the Sky to see contemporary and native hoop dancing merge into one of the indigenous stories about star woman; this piece was presented at the Expanse festival in Edmonton Alberta Fringe Theatres. Her current projects include dancing with the A’NO:WARA Dance Theatre on the 2019-2022 Sky Dancers: Bridges; which opened the Festival Quartiers Danses at Places Des Arts in Montreal Quebec and Bear Grease the indigenous comedic twist on Grease. These days her focus is on contemporary dance, as well as native american hoop dancing.
