Sam first started dancing at the age of 4 at a local dance school. At 16 years old after completing her major BBO exam grades in Tap & Ballet she started to help out in the younger classes to then become a teaching assistant, progressing to teaching full time when she was 20. After having her first child Sam continued to teach until the school was closed. After a break from dancing, Sam started classes again as a student with Frances at Lordswood Dancentre, re – training and learning the new BBO grades. She has worked through all her examinations up to Foundation – Intermediate Ballet and Advance 1 Tap. She even danced in a show whilst pregnant with her daughter – dedication or madness? – no, just a love for dance!
Sam has been teaching at LDC for over 10 years now. She has watched as the students progress and grow up through dance, including her daughter. Seeing their achievements and happiness at dancing is what keeps her passion going!
Outside of dancing, Sam regularly runs. Having only been running for just over a year she completed her first half marathon in 2018! Sam also loves to travel, slowly ticking off places on her destination bucket list!
