Welcome to Miss Samantha King

A note from Miss Samantha

 

I am so excited to be joining the Karen Clark Dance Studio this season! I have been dancing since I was 2 years old and competing since I was 6! My competitive training began in Red Deer, AB at Make Your Mark Dance and continued at Dance Spectrum Inc in Calgary, AB. I have trained in all studio styles including tap, ballet, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, acro, pointe and musical theatre and have completed numerous ADAPT, RAD and Al Gilbert examinations. Additionally, I was a part of the Performing and Visual Arts program at Central Memorial High School where I studied a wide variety of styles including Latin, vogue, West African, swing and more! Over the years I have had the opportunity to study under some incredible choreographers including Megan Lawson, Brian Foley, Katie Hanson, Tasha Lawson, Lisa La Touche and Christie Lee Manning, all of which have shared their passion for dance and love for creativity with me. I absolutely love working with kids and can’t wait to return the favour! I am currently attending the University of Victoria with the intent of pursuing a career in child psychology! Prior to my move to the island, I spent any and all of my available time working with youth in a multitude of areas including nannying, tutoring, mentoring and of course, teaching dance! I can’t wait to get to know the KCDS Dancers and have an incredible year with everyone!
