My expertise spans performing, directing and cultivating dance. If it has to do with movement -- I've got it! I am a content creator, producer and executor. A powerhouse that ignites everything (and everyone) I touch.
I hold a BA in Dance and Social Justice, MA in Social Psychology, Certification in Healing Centered Yoga, and 18 years as a professional dancer.
My work has been performed at Collective Thread Dance Festival, Capital City Black Film Festival, The Tank, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Big Range Austin, Women and Their Work, among other places in Austin and New York. I've been commissioned by Austin Community College, Spectrum Theatre, The Alamo Drafthouse, Fusebox, Six Square, Magna Carda, Riders Against The Storm, to name a few. My awards include the B. Iden Payne Award for Best Choreography of the Year (2016) and many more.
In addition, I created wellness programming using movement, featured on PBS and in EASTside Magazine. Her clients include: African American Heritage Facility, Children in Nature's Workshop, Women's Conference of Central Texas, Women In Jazz; as well as on an individual session clientele.
I am proudly the founder and Executive Artistic Director of Ashé Arts, a performing arts organization dedicated to the preservation and presentation of Black Arts worldwide.
With a vast array of different projects, skills and clientele, I enjoy the versatility. Being able to reach people of differing backgrounds and differing needs, wants and ideas is true freedom. As an artist and teacher, the beauty is the "a-ha moment" when someone finally understands a move or concept and the pure joy they experience. I experience it with them. The insiration a person feels knowing they have someone who believes in them and will go the extra mile to see them to their destination. That's gold!
This sista is the ish. Revolutionary
Sade Jones is amazing. If you get a chance to work with her, you absolutely should!
I was a tutor at Sadler Means all girls academy when Sadé performed for our school. Her talent and sincerity were communicated immediately. Since then I've had a chance to witness her competence as a dancer, an instructor, and as someone who cares for and acts within her community.
A mentor. An impact. A force. A rare find. Healing through movement for mind, body & spirit. Sade Jones surpasses uniqueness.

I have degrees in Dance and Psychology which provide a level of expertise beyond just a studio teacher. I've been dancing professionally for 18 years in New York, Minneapolis and Texas. My training is of the Graham and Horton (modern dance) East Coast Jazz/Funk, Salsa/Rumba, and West African techniques.
Pricing is listed on my website www.sadeizm.com/services. Private Lessons have a base rate of $100/hour. If ther is a special project/goal you are working on, schedule a consultation for a custom price that works best for you.
I started teaching dance during undergrad. I was the founder and captain of the Step/Dance Team as well as the creator of a movement expression circle during my dance therapy training. I noticed that I was good at explaining concetps to beginners in a way that they could understand without making them feel small or underestimated. People started coming bakc week after week. Then while in graduate school, I had the opportunity to teach summer camp at a school. Instead, I turned my time there into building a fine arts department and producing 3 productions a year the the Paramount Theatre and Long Center. It was the best time frame of my life. Cultivating self esteem and love through dance to over 200 students a year. Eventually, Austin community caught on and my perfroming arts organization was formed. So now i focus mostly on private lessons when I'm not running Ashe Arts.
