About

Ms. Sarah Cullen Fuller began her formal training at the Academy of Movement and Music in Oak Park, Illinois, under the direction of Stephanie Clemens. She continued her studies at the Boston and Joffrey Ballet schools before graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with degrees in dance and psychology. Upon graduation, Ms. Fuller became a member of the Chicago-based company, The 58 Group, before joining Hubbard Street 2 where she was soon promoted to the main company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the artistic leadership of Jim Vincent. Ms. Fuller has had the opportunity to dance the works of such leading choreographers as Lou Conte, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, Lar Lubovitch, Susan Marshall, Marguerite Donlon, Jim Vincent and Alex Ketley, among others. After her retirement from HSCD in 2009, Ms Fuller continued her relationships with both the Hubbard Street Dance Center and the Academy of Movement and Music, teaching, choreographing and fostering young talent.

Currently, Ms. Fuller is working on a new project partnering with Rush University Medical Center and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago to provide contemporary dance classes for people with Parkinson's Disease. She is also the clinic director of Fuller Health Group, a chiropractic clinic that she and her husband, Dr. Brian Fuller, own with locations in the Gold Coast and Forest Park. With an interest in serving the unique health concerns of young dancers, Ms. Fuller and her husband, Brian, have created a website called www.dancerwellness.com in which dancers can access tips for healthy living, articles on injury and injury prevention and where they can post comments, upload videos and photos, and communicate with fellow dancers throughout the country.

Ms. Fuller is thrilled to be a part of the Loyola Dance faculty, teaching Ballet IV and Pointe.
