Samantha Field  (Drama and Musical Theatre Teacher)
Samantha is in her final year of her degree at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Studying Applied Theatre (Community and Education).
Samantha has always loved drama and began through youth theatre where she explored drama through LAMDA exams and performing at the national youth theatre connections festival. Youth theatre encouraged her to audition for a drama college The Eastern School Of Performing Arts where she studied Musical Theatre for 3 years before going onto her degree. During her degree Samantha set up her own dance class and this is when she realised she wanted to focus on how she can use her knowledge to encourage and nurture the next generation of performers. Samantha loves teaching at Ballet Malvern and feels it’s a home away from home where children can learn and that it is an honest and caring environment. Samantha feels that everyone should have access to the magic of theatre and experience the joy it can bring.
We are so excited to have Samantha join us, she is so in-line with our ethos of inclusivity, brings a wealth of knowledge, and teaching skills with her, the students LOVE her classes.
