Samantha Ryan Campbell
BIO: Samantha Ryan is a natural performer and engaging entertainer who embraces all movement has to offer. A former gymnast turned dance entertainer, Samantha hails from Windsor, but not before stops in LA, Michigan, NYC and Toronto in an effort to discover, shape and develop a career in dance and entertainment.
Samantha Ryan completed the Broadway Dance Centre – International Student Visa Professional Program in NYC before she made her decision to move to Toronto and explore opportunities as a dance instructor and aspiring professional. She has gained certification as a dance instructor in Acrobatic Arts and Cecchetti ballet and as an adjudicator with the Professional Adjudicators Alliance (PAA) and Acrobatic Dance Adjudicators (ADA). Samantha is also on faculty with Dance Attack, a leader in Canadian dance workshops.
In addition to teaching in the heart of trendy Queen West at City Dance Corp, Toronto’s leading centre for dance and artistic movement, Samantha Ryan has had the pleasure of being invited by studio owners from multiple studios from Ontario’s southwest all the way to Sudbury to lead workshops, contribute to intensives and create choreography for competitive soloists, teams and school play ensembles.
Samantha is also a member of UBCP/ACTRA and the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists. In addition to honing her skills under the direction of some of Toronto and New York’s most proficient entertainers, Samantha has mentored under Toronto’s talented and beloved Allison Bradley and been guided professionally by the incredibly accomplished Amy Allen, one of Los Angeles’ most sought-after choreographers. Samantha’s experiences have allowed her to transition from dance entertainment to musical theatre and in front of the camera, having most recently appeared in the movie Work It, a coming of age dance comedy produced by Alicia Keys for Netflix.
When not teaching, training or under contract, Samantha could always be found on stage performing throughout Toronto as a company lead and accompanying others by invitation with some of Toronto’s most revered artists at the industry’s most celebrated events including Toronto’s Choreographers Ball and Fever After Dark. Samantha is thrilled to be a member of the talented team at Premiere Talent Management and looking forward to making a contribution to Vancouver’s entertainment industry.
