Sara Kei Von Gillern appears as one of the top 20 finalists in the third season of the Fox network’s reality television series, So You Think You Can Dance. Nicknamed “Mis’ Von,” she entered the world of dance at the early age of four years old. Her formal dance training includes participation in the Colorado State University Dance Program, studying as an intern at the Broadway Dance Center, and with the Academy for the Performing Arts. Sara says that her techniques and dance style draws mainly on elements of hip-hop such as breaking and locking, and that her most memorable dance experience was living and training in New York.
Apart from dancing, she also enjoys numerous hobbies in her spare time, such as figure skating, graphic design, skiing, playing the guitar, snowboarding, and writing. She admires various dancers in each hip-hop style she observes and studies, though she doesn’t have a particular favorite professional dancer. Sara has performed at the NBA as a member of the Denver Nuggets’ Mob Squad, their hip-hop dance and cheerleading team. She has also danced for the AFL Colorado Crush as a Crush City dancer, as well as traveling to to Nevada, Hawaii and California with her previous dance troupes.BuddyTV Exclusive Interview with Sara Von Gillern
