Interview with Intern Sarah

What has been your strongest impression of Atlanta?
At the beginning, I had a hard time to get around in Atlanta. The city is so spread-out and to know a good place to go out for eating, shopping, dancing was difficult. But after the second week, I was able to ride by MARTA and the bus and by asking, people gave me advice. Being an intern at CORE help me a lot too. You guys were so nice with me, ready to give a hand any time. Thank you for that!!

From your time here, what is your impression of the Atlanta dance community?
There are a lot of amazing choreographers and dancers here. I had a chance to see many of their performances and I would say, thank you again to CORE to get me in touch with all those concerts. My second impression, compare to France, even if it’s hard to get funds, place for performing, the community is really active and passionate.  

You participated in the Fieldwork workshop this spring. What was that like for you?
CORE give me this opportunity to have a space to create and perform, it was just amazing. It was one of my wishes to try as an un-professional, to explore my capacity and my idea about movement. I don’t think that in France, we have a similar program. It would be so great!!! (CORE responds: There is one in Berlin now. You could always take it back with you to France!)

What will you take with you from your experiences at CORE?
Your involvement for the dance community through the events, the connection that you are doing in the dance community. 

Best wishes on your future endeavors!
