“These Intensives are exactly that. A must for the discerning dancer who wants to think inside and outside of the dressing up box. Well conceived and constructed, every last drop is squeezed from the time given and you work hard, but wish you had longer. A psychological as well as physical workout, designed to free the creative soul. Thereby enabling playfulness and discovery of new possibilities. Sam has the magic ability to dispel any negatives and turn them into ones strengths.” Mrs K. Rothman UK 2013
“The weekend intensive workshops with Samantha left me motivated, energized and eager to put what I’d learned into practice!
With Samantha’s expert guidance I was able to precisely refine and strengthen core moves, build on form and dynamics within my choreography and bring further depth and feeling into performances. Inspiring, dynamic and fun – a must for tribal and belly dancers alike” Ms B. Ridley UK 2012
“You have really brought everyone together and helped build the community. You are the king pin: the corner stone of Tribal Fusion Belly Dance in the UK !!! “ Victoria UK 2011
“I suffer with aching joints and found the exercises really beneficial for my hips! Just wish these workshops were available more often!!! It was lovely to have a mixture of styled dancers and was a fab atmosphere.” Jackie UK 2011
“Your workshop was by the far the best I have ever taken. The way you organized time (throughout the whole series and on each individual day), broke down movement, the content, and the level of complexity were perfect for me (and hopefully everyone else too). Learning from you was so enjoyable and uncomplicated even though I couldn’t always execute the moves. Also the way you present is very authentic which gave way to a great atmosphere. I learned a ton, not just about your dance techniques but about mine as well. I feel like a new dancer. Thank you so much.” Traci USA 2011
“Not all great dancers are also great teachers. The best teachers aren’t necessarily fabulous dancers (although it helps). ‘Vagabond Princess’ is a priceless jewel in that she is both, with an intuitive sense of how to balance personal creativity and technique both on stage and off.”
“…I didn’t seem to be the only one that felt like I had gained a sister at the end of two days with her. She is so open and encouraging of each dancer as an individual, just by being herself. She has my ultimate respect, and I’m on the lookout for future workshops” Tamsyn Edinburgh UK 2010
” her workshops gave me so much material to work with, and it was all new! Usually there is something in a workshop that is a repeat, and that wasn’t the case with Sam. She completely challenged me and gave me so much to take home and work on. She’s a beautiful person and instructor. She has changed the way I approach choreography and movement.” Forwarded from Tribal Fest 2011 USA
