Lecturer Gets to the ‘Pointe’ of It

Sarah Egan Warren, English lecturer and ballerina.

Sarah Egan Warren, assistant director of the professional writing program in the English department, always wanted to be a ballerina. Although she set aside her dream when she was 12, she realized it as an adult.

In the process of getting up on her toes, Egan Warren’s empathy for her writing students rose. “My engineering students are brilliant at what they do but struggle writing about it,” she says. “Learning ballet reminded me of this.”

Egan Warren was so enlightened by her studio experiences she gave a live talk recently at Raleigh’s Pecha Kucha Night, where speakers gather to discuss their various passions.
