Working with Sarah is a true joy. In addition to her impressive talent, she has an incredible work ethic and reliability that you just don't find anymore. Sarah picks up choreography as fast as any professional dancer I've worked with, but doesn't just rely on her skills, she comes to each rehearsal having done her homework and prepared to focus on what needs to be done. Sarah is a first class performer as well, with a natural poise and presence on stage that commands attention. She is someone that I would not hesitate recommending to any project. I was extremely happy in my decision to hire her and will continue to do so in the future.

JOHN PISANO - BANDLEADER / JUKEBOX PRODUCTIONS
Sarah Stallman has been an incredible asset to our bands GYPSY and GYPSY DREAMS. She brings professionalism and talent to our groups and is a pleasure to work with. Being a part of a Fleetwood Mac tribute band, as a keyboardist and a lead vocalist, she has mastered Christine McVie's role perfectly. Her vocal ability to follow, blend and harmonize makes it a pleasure to work with Sarah!
