At the age of 3 Samantha started dancing at The Dance Company where she continued her dance career until the age of 22. During those years she completed Dance as a subject in high school, through UCT as well as her beginner Dance teacher qualifications with DESA (Dance Educators South Africa).
She participated in many dance shows within the dance studio at theaters such as The
Roxy Revue Bar in Grand West and the Milnerton playhouse, the Baxter and achieved excellent awards for her dance examinations and performances. She has a trained background in Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Tap. Her passion has always been performing and teaching dance.
In 2010 she decided to open her doors to Dance Lab in Table View to help children, teenagers, and adults realise their ability to dance.
She received her Western Province colours as a Hip Hop coach at the SASAFF (South African Fitness Sports Aerobics Federation) in 2013 when Dance Lab’s two teams qualified to represent Western Province on a National level in Kimberley.
Over the years Dance Lab has grown from strength to strength with many achievements at various competitions and always putting on wonderful productions giving the students the opportunity to have stage experience.
Teaching and imparting all her knowledge to her students is what Sam thrives on. “Watching my students grow under my wing is one of the most rewarding things in life!”
You can see her passion and love for dance in the way she teaches her students, in a loving and nurturing manner.
