Miss Sam, the founder of Itsy Bitsy Dance. Itsy Bitsy is a combination of my passion for teaching dance and being a proud Mum of three.


Miss Sam wanted to create a different type of toddler dance class to what is currently out there.

 

For the last decade, Miss Sam has been teaching dance curriculum in UK primary and secondary schools. Alongside this, Miss Sam teaches tots to adults at prestigious performing arts & dance schools.

Miss Sam has travelled to popular Los Angeles commercial dance schools; training in hip-hop and street dance and has obtained many prestige qualifications:

  • ISTD Foundation in Dance Instruction

  • ISTD Promotion in Health and Safety in Dance

  • iD-Company Street Certified Teacher

  • NCSSE Coaching Cheer fundamentals

  • BCA accredited Cheerleading Coach

  • ISTD Advance 2 Modern

  • ISTD Advance 1 Tap

  • ISTD Advance 1 National Dance

  • ISTD Intermediate Ballet

  • DBS Checked & First Aid accredited

  • Prevent COVID-19 certificate

Having experience as both a teacher running a class and a Mummy attending one, she felt there was something missing. She wanted to make the classes current with a street dance syllabus and also create a community for the mums (or dads) attending the class with a coffee club.

 

Miss Sam trained full-time at one of the South’s leading dance colleges, where she obtained advanced dance qualifications and did her teacher training. Miss Sam studied acting in Los Angeles at The Acting Corps USA. She then went on to dance and choreograph professionally in many shows across the UK and the USA.
