Let’s Dance, Newport RI


 At the Ivy, one of the joys at the breakfast table is listening to our guests talk about their experiences in Newport. Because our guests sit at a communal dining table, they impart their experiences to the Innkeepers and our guests, inspiring us all to seek out places and events we might not otherwise explore for ourselves. This particular morning a young couple beaming with joy, describe their evening at the Newport Dance party, were East Bay Ballroom instructure, Sara Barker, offers classes in Ballroom, Latin, Country and Swing dancing. Dances are held most Thursdays and occasionally, weekend dances.  Sara’s dancing invites energy, joy, and creativity into the lives of others; you will come away knowing the choreographed steps but you will also come away with friends, memories, and an activity that you can enjoy for life.

She now lives in Newport, RI with her husband and dog GiGi. Owner of, East Bay Ballroom, She has been dancing and teaching in RI for the last seven years.
