“Love” for Sarah Tallman


Wonderbound dancer Sarah Tallman is from Greeley, trained in Fort Collins and statewide in addition to her national training, and established her home as one of the founding dancers of Denver-based contemporary ballet company Wonderbound. Now in her tenth season with the company, Sarah has performed leading roles in many of Artistic Director Garrett Ammon’s ballets, and, in recent years, has been choreographing for the company as well. This February, Tallman will debut new choreography for Wonderbound’s “Love.” She has produced 7 ballets thus far. In addition to her full time work as a professional dancer, Tallman is also a teacher at the Colorado Conservatory of Dance in Broomfield. Her ability to teach, choreograph, and dance speaks to a disciplined, versatile mind. I asked Tallman a few questions about her piece for the ballet, Intimate Letters.
