Savannah’s choreography often explores feminist themes and integrates sound design and text. As a part of her commitment to artistic development and inquiry, Savannah regularly participates in artistic residencies such as the Surel's Place Artist-In-Residency Program and a residency with Little Fire Artist Collective co-produced by the Margie Gillis Foundation. In 2023, Savannah was selected for the Ann & Weston Hicks Choreography Fellowship at Jacob’s Pillow and was also invited as a Choreography Fellow for Carmel Dance Festival’s 2024 Dance & Choreography Fellowship Program.

Savannah's artistic journey has been shaped by invaluable mentorship from luminaries such as Dianne McIntyre, Risa Steinberg, Adam Barruch, Lillian Barbeito, and Alex Ketley. Her innovative choreography has been generously funded and recognized by various institutions and presenting festivals throughout her career. Notable accolades include a Choreography Fellowship and funding through the Greater Columbus Arts Council and grant support from the Illinois Arts Council for her participation in Hubbard Street's Professional Program under the directorship of Alexandra Wells. The Boston Foundation's "Next Steps" grant program recently honored Savannah with funding and mentorship support to develop her work SILENCE which seeks to depict the emotional and physical suffering caused by the fall of Roe v. Wade and reproductive justice in the United States.

Savannah has set work in numerous professional and pre-professional settings including Columbus Dance Theater’s Dancers Making Dances, Hubbard Street Professional Development Program’s Mid-Year Showcase, Butler University’s Dance Program for the Indianapolis Arts Festival, and a commission for Deos Contemporary Ballet in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her artistic interests extend beyond the stage, with her dance films showcased at renowned festivals such as Dancecentric Film Festival, Dance Camera West Film Festival, Greensboro Dance Film Festival, and Take Up Space.

A Butler University graduate with Honors in Dance Performance, Savannah co-founded the Little Fire Artist Collective in 2020. Originating from Boise, Idaho, she spent transformative years in Chicago before redirecting her focus to teaching and freelance commissions in Boston, Massachusetts.
