Sammi J School of Performing Arts
the dance classes have been running since 2018 at the community centre. The school offers a wide range of classes for ages 2 and up including ballet, tap, modern, Acro, musical theatre, private singing classes and street dance.
There is also the opportunity to do both local and national competitions as well in house exams which show parents what their children have learnt throughout the year.
The school always aims to give students the best dance, singing and musical theatre education in a fun and friendly environment. We truly believe that the school is a family and we always encourage all students to strive to all of their goals in the studio as well as any performing goals they may have.
Sammi Johnstone, the principal of the school, trained locally at Joyce Mason’s and then trained further at Performers College in Essex. She then went on to have a lucrative career as a professional singer and dancer working for companies such as Carnival, Fred Olsen, Saga and First Choice to name a few. When returning home she continued her dance teacher education with the I.S.T.D. and Acrobatic Arts and opened her own school in 2018. Sammi loves teaching and enjoys welcoming any new students of any ability to join us SJSPA.
