Sam is a London based Movement Director from Bradford. He started dancing Ballet and Contemporary at a young age training with the Royal Ballet's outreach programme.
He studied Drama at the University of East Anglia where he trained in acting and devised theatre. During his studies he worked as a theatre choreographer and movement director on a range of classical and contemporary plays, including Shakespeare, new writing and devised theatre.
He has a particular interest in collaborative choreographic practices for devising movement with actors. Whilst teaching restoration movement to BA (Hons) Acting Musical Theatre students at Central Sam used the teachings of Litz Pisk to inform his practice and has growing interest in movement training fundamentals for actors.
Sam is also currently taking a short course in historical dance with Ian Brener to build upon his experience in period movement and dance.
