Sarah Ingley

Owner, Gainesville Dance Academy and Circulation Supervisor, Santa Fe College Lawrence W. Tyree Library 

As a young mother, Sarah Ingley felt she had a lot to prove. This compelled and strengthened her to learn as much as possible about parenting. Her role as a mother gave her purpose and confidence. She discovered she could rise to the circumstance and be competent at something difficult and meaningful. 

As her son grew, so did her ambitions. While working full time as a single parent, Ingley graduated from University of Florida with highest honors and earned the full teaching certificates in ballet pedagogy from American Ballet Theatre. 

Her professional credits include being lead dancer in “Christmas With the Celts” on national tours and in Las Vegas, dancing for former U.S. President Carter at a Carter Center event, in Lincoln Center’s Dance on Camera Festival, in a Disney/Telemundo New Year’s Eve special, on Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise ships and at Busch Gardens. She was also a writer for nearly 15 years. 

Today, she fosters a love for dance in others at her world-class Irish dance academy, all while working full time in library operations at Santa Fe College. In both roles, Ingley emphasizes community involvement and outreach.
