Miss Clarissa
Teacher - ISTD

Clarissa has been teaching for Samantha since leaving Preston Dance College in 2011. Samantha is especially proud that Clarissa has chosen to pursue her teaching career at S J Dance as it was here that she started dancing as a hobby.

Clarissa started dancing at the tender age of two at both the Samantha Jane School of Dance and the Perkins School of Dance. Clarissa has enjoyed being part of the shows at Samatha’s school and took various exams under the ISTD in Modern Theatre, Tap, Ballet, National and Jazz gaining excellent results in all genres.

Along with attending lessons, Clarissa successfully auditioned and gained a place the Oldham pantomimes, 5 years on the run and also performed with the English National Ballet in Giselle. As youngster, Clarissa enjoyed acting at the Judy Barkers Academy taking Lamda exams.

At sixteen years old Clarissa knew that dance was the career for her and auditioned for Preston Dance college successfully gaining a place on their four year professional dance and teachers course.

Clarissa completed her Diploma in Dance Instruction (DDI) in both Modern and National along with a Diploma in Dance Education (DDE) Ballet. Along with her ISTD qualifications Clarissa also holds an exercise to music qualification.

Clarissa love working at her former dance school and has loved taking on a more prominent role with S J Dance, in particular working with the local primary schools as part of the S J Dance brand. As one of the main teachers Clarissa manages to juggle the unsociable hours, that come with the role, with being a full time mum of one.
