Founder & CEO
In 2022, Sarah joined the Tap Cancer Out organization and watched the amazing impact they were making as being the first philanthropic presence in the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Sarah has since been inspired to bring this incredibly important effort to the dance community.
Growing up Sarah has always been passionate about helping people from volunteering with the Special Needs Olympics to teaching dance camps for kids. Sarah has had her own fair share of health battles that have not only challenged her but made her passion for helping others in need even stronger.
Why Sarah started Out Dance Cancer: ""I was so inspired by the Tap Out Cancer community that I wanted to bring that same effort and compassion into the world of dance that I love so much. I am so excited to combine my passion for dance and helping others by creating Out Dance Cancer. Whether you are dancing with your family, friends, studio, or on your own, together we are a tribe making moves to Out Dance Cancer!"
Vice President of Operations and Outreach
Damion has worked with numerous non- profits such as Food for Thought and Food Bank of the Rockies in Denver, Colorado. He began his volunteer service in 2014 at the prestigious J.K. Mullen High School, completing acts of service ranging from packing non-perishable foods to coaching youth baseball clinics. Over the course of his professional career, he has built and improved multiple departments in the supply chain industry and is currently employed by US Foods.
Damion has dedicated his life to helping others that are less fortunate and in need of compassion. He also enjoys his other passions such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, landscape oil painting, hiking, traveling and enjoying time with his dog Cooper.
Why Damion joined Out Dance Cancer "Throughout my childhood, my uncle Brian and cousin Troy both lost their battle with cancer. My grandfather Tony, cousin Pat, and friend Ronnie all underwent surgery to remove cancer that would have changed the trajectory of their lives forever. I believe that the dance community can come together to help find a cure and raise awareness so others do not have to endure the hardships of cancer."
