Samantha began her life-long love for dance at age three when she began dancing with the Veerneest Ukrainian dance troupe. She continued her passion for dance while training at Amanda’s Academy of Dance where she went on to receive several awards and scholarships in her 12 years of competing. Samantha spent several summers attending dance intensive workshops that included travelling to Disneyland and New York City. Samantha also auditioned and was selected to perform in Alberta Ballet’s production of the Nutcracker.
Samantha has been trained in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, modern, and musical theatre and is excited to share her knowledge and passion for dance with students at Amanda’s Academy of Dance.
