The Lucky Penny's First Intern!

The Lucky Penny is excited to introduce our first Arts Administration Intern, 
Sarah Freeman!

 Sarah Freeman is ecstatic to join The Lucky Penny, especially when she compares this internship to her last job seeing old peoples’ skin cancer at her father’s dermatology office. She is a rising junior at Emory University where she is a double major in Dance/ Movement Studies and English. After choreographing musical theater for several years in high school, Sarah has enjoyed the switch from Broadway to modern by performing with the Emory Dance Company for two years. Recently she presented her solo composition “The gilded creature strains and spins” at the American College Dance Festival in Tampa, FL, where it was chosen for the final Gala Performance. In the fall, Sarah will be traveling to London to study abroad for the semester and change her status of “never moved out of Georgia”. Working with The Lucky Penny is her first foray into the larger Atlanta dance and art world. She hopes that all the amazing people she will meet and experiences she will gain this summer will help her decide what to do after graduation, but suggestions are always welcome. In addition to helping Blake and Malina this summer, Sarah also hopes to find inspiration for her next piece, which will feature Mrs. Dalloway and a Kit-Kat bar. She is so thankful to The Lucky Penny for giving her this amazing chance to learn about all the aspects of production and running a dance company!
