Samantha is a passionate instructor who is excited to share her joy and love for ballroom dance. She has studied American Smooth, American Rhythm and international Latin and Standard styles through Fred Astaire. She enjoys competing and was an International Fred Astaire pro-am finalist in International Latin and pro-am champion in multiple Interregional and National Fred Astaire competitions in the American style.

She enjoys melding the two art forms of figure skating and ballroom dancing together with a focus on lines, posture, balance, and extension.
