I don't write many testimonials - not because I don't want to but because I don't want to sound too fawning and insincere. I hope, beyond hope, that this doesn't come out that way because Sam deserves a proper testimonial from me.
I felt honoured to be asked to photograph her, and spent a wonderful weekend in Devon, playing with Spindel and frolicking with bellydancers in the most beautiful surroundings - all because we wanted to be around Sam! She is the most down to earth, humble, talented and beautiful woman I have had the pleasure to work with. She won't believe me and I know that nothing I say will make her believe me - but it's the truth.
Sam you are a star.

I saw you dance at the BDSS performance in Torquay 2008 and you and the other Tribal girls were fab, I'm normally a ME style kind of girl, but had to go and buy the fundamentals DVD after that, which you are very good in! Great to have a familiar accent to listen to! I loved the performance you did on stage where you were like a doll being pulled about on strings!

- Living the dream! From Brickie to Bellydance Superstar; what a story. She's worked really hard to get where she is today and kept her humility, which means that she is still willing and eager to learn in order to push herself and this dance form.
But above all, she has stayed true to herself and kept her feet on the ground.
Go girl! You rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrock - everyone loved your workshop and people were blown away by your performance on Sunday!!!

She is a wonderful teacher, a really nice person and a very beautiful and skilled dancer. If I ever have a chance to repeat workshops with her, I won't miss it ;> Sam, please come back to Poland next year! ;>

Why didn't I do this long ago?
A beautiful dancer
An inspiring teacher
A clever costume designer
AND A NUTTER!!
Sam delivered one of the best workshops I've attended yet when I hosted her last summer. I first met her in Dublin before her trip accross the Atlantic. She was a beautiful, stylish and elegant dancer then but she didn't stand still. She has worked so hard to acheive such fantastic technique. This is coupled with a level of artistry that makes her a pleasure to watch.
Along with her success she's still the same beautiful person (nutter!)
Miss you lots.

I love Sam like whoa. She helped me formally transition into my tribal existence, and she doesn't even know it. Well, I guess she does now that I wrote this. She is my muffin, and she rocks.

I must say I have enjoyed tribal with Sam.
She has what it takes to be in the Bellydance Superstars
and it is a pleasure watching her perform, her ability to
morph into the Snake Charmah, check those eyes when
she dances, Wow. Many thanks for gracing our island this year!

It has been a pleasure taking some classes with you here on the Island, only wish I could have come to more!! Thank you for giving such a lightning bolt of energy to the dance scene here and sharing your knowledge.

Sam is like cherry pie... no better
Sam is like the wind... no better
Sam is like my monkey's uncle.
She's the dope.
That's all there is to it.

I have never attended classes that I love SO much! Samantha is not only a great teacher, attentive, dedicated and fun; she is also such a genuinely warm and caring person. We on the Island are THAT much richer for having her here! An ode to you, Sam (wink!):
I can't get enough of Sam
She makes me work so hard
Thought I was such an expert
Now I learned I was such a nard!
She teaches with poise
She teaches with grace
I leave her class every time
With a smile (and sweat!) on my face
Maybe if I work hard enough
And keep on practicing
I'll learn enough of this stuff
To do it without tripping!
And now that said
I just wanna
Say thank you VERY much
to the great "Snake Charmah"!!!
You rock, madame Snake Charmah, and I can't wait to see you in the Limelight - you are going up, up, up, beautiful!

An amazing teacher - pays attention to the students (which is disappointingly rare in areas outside of bellydance) and is clear in her instructions. Also a personable person (can I say those words together??) so she's fun to talk to, too! (OK I think I'd better quit before my redundancy gets too out of hand.)

Sam's an amazing person, A beautiful dancer, a gorgeous woman with a starshine soul, a good friend, and an awesome house guest. She can rustle up grub like noone's business. She can Isadora Duncan til the cows come home. She can paint your bathroom red and bring in the sunshine despite the rain - she's a truely good person and wickid fun!
