Samantha Jane Greenwood
Owner

Samantha started dancing at the age of five with the Sheila Carter School of Dancing. Miss Carter was the original owner of the school and is now an examiner for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and travels all over the world, she still has a keen interest in her school as Miss Williams was one of her pupils and opened the new S J Dance Studio at Stockfield Mill in January 2010.

In 1991 Miss Milnes took over the school and at sixteen Miss Williams became her assistant and began working towards her teaching qualifications. In 2001 Samantha took the school over on her own and has since grown the business not only in location, but in the number of pupils and teaching staff.

Samantha is proud to have her ISTD Modern Associate Diploma along with qualifications and certificates for  Melody Movement, Zumba and Zumba Kids, Fit Steps, Safe Guarding and First aid all within her own, purpose built dance studio.

Samantha has previously enjoyed being part of the Manchester Area Organisers Co mmittee for ISTD, arranging central exams for teachers in the North West. Samantha is extremely proud to be working in he education sector giving dance lessons to those who may not normally get the opportunity to take part in outside of school. S J Dance now works with eight schools in the local community.

Samantha is super proud of her teaching team now consisting of past pupils Miss Clarissa, Miss Lauren, Miss Vanessa along with her long term teacher and friend Miss Jen. The S J Dance team is a ‘real family’ of not only teachers, but special friends.

Samantha actively encourages the teaching team to create and develop dances for the S J Dance Show, which takes place once every two years. This allows Samantha the necessary time to organise costumes, music, rehearsals and chaperones which all go to make sure that each show builds on the success of the previous one.
