Biography

Hailing from Edinburgh, Samantha was awarded a scholarship to study at The Dance School of Scotland when she was twelve years old. While at The Dance School, she won a choreography competition which offered as a prize the chance of a life-time to study in Australia for 3 weeks. 

Samantha is very versatile in all the genres of dance – classical ballet, contemporary dance and jazz - and is dedicated to a career in dance and performance. 

She won a scholarship place at the well-known Bird College in Kent, to study dance and musical theatre performance for three years.

How the Awards Helped

The Dewar Arts Award will offer financial support towards the costs to study at Bird College.



I would like to say a huge thanks to the trustees for this award. It is deeply appreciated and will help me concentrate on my dance studies without having to worry.
