Julie CowingCelebrity Dancer
Julie has lived in Prescott for almost 20 years. She has been in the medical field since she was a candy-striper at the age of 15 and found her passion for hospice ten years ago. Julie has vowed that everyone she knows and loves will have the gift of hospice touch them in some manner in their lives. She is currently the Executive Director of Hospice for the Good Samaritan Society, overseeing their six hospices in multiple states throughout the country. Julie is an RN, a Certified Hospice Administrator, holds a degree in Mathematics and is currently pursuing a degree in Forensic Psychology, just for the fun of it. Her three kids (son Jacob and twins Sara and Miranda) are all proud alums of the PUSD school system. Prescott has a special place in Julie’s heart and is where she met her husband, Paul, in 2007. When she is not traveling for work, Julie enjoys spending time with her extremely supportive family, her ridiculous cat Emme, and all of her amazing friends in the community. She thanks each of them for their support on this DFTS journey and assures everyone that she and her dance partner, Sarah Hinson, will not disappoint.
Sarah HinsonProfessional Dancer
Sarah Hinson began dancing at the age of 3. She studied ballet, tap and jazz which extended to lyrical, hip hop, swing and contemporary by high school graduation. It was at this time that Sarah was introduced to flamenco dancing, inspiring her to move to Albuquerque, NM to study at the National Conservatory of Flamenco. Sarah danced professionally as a company member of Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company under the direction of Joaquin Encinias. Sarah toured with Yjastros for 5 years performing and competing, as well as earning a degree at the University of New Mexico. At the University Sarah also studied modern dance extensively and became involved in many modern dance projects, including dancing as a soloist in the resurrection of Hanya Holm’s “Rota”, earning national recognition. Back in Prescott, Sarah is studying and performing belly dance and is a member of Why Not BELLYDANCE???; a local performance troupe that insists on having fun! She currently is an instruction of belly dance and flamenco dance, as well as a self-employed piano instructor at Sarah Hinson Piano Studio. Sarah is grateful to all her instructors guiding her throughout the years, and to her family for always supporting her artistic endeavors. Sarah would also like to thank the Boys & Girls Clubs for bringing wonderful programs and opportunities to the youth of our communities!
