DANCE & CHOREOGRAPHY
Sarah Todd has been an avid dancer since she was three years old. During her two month hospital stay after her injury, returning to dance was constantly on her mind. She was fortunate in her recovery to regain the ability to use her legs, but her arms were another story. She started dancing again once she stood on her tip-toes in physical therapy, but after doing the dances she already knew, she quickly realized that modifications needed to be made. So, she adjusted the arm movements to make them suitable for her body, which led to her discovering her love for choreography. Now, Sarah Todd has choreographed several dances, and she uploads them to her YouTube channel.
Sarah Todd walked in her first fashion show with the Runway of Dreams Foundation during New York Fashion Week in September 2019. The trend of adaptive clothing for people with disabilities has made a great impact on her independence, and she loves rocking the runway and helping Runway of Dreams promote inclusion and acceptance of people with disabilities in the fashion industry.
Sarah Todd is represented by Gamut Management.
