Congratulations to School of Dance BFA 00′ alumna, Sara Dimmick, for being selected for The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship 2020 Seminole 100 list of the fastest-growing businesses owned by Florida State University alumni. Dimmick is the founder and co-partner of Physical Equilibrium.
The education and experience I received during my time at FSU within the CFA’s School of Dance laid the foundation for Physical Equilibrium. Even though I’m not a performing artist anymore, I decided to build a business around fitness and athletics. Everyday I’m working with others to teach them about their bodies, instill healthy habits, demonstrate proper movement form, and educate them about injury prevention and rehab. Running a successful business is an art and science which I’m constantly balancing between client experiences, employee management, and behind the scenes tasks like paying bills and thinking about growth in the future.
