She spent 13 years dancing with the Eagan studio in tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, contemporary, hip hop, ballet, and pointe dances and earned the Student of the Year award in 2015. In middle school, she had roles in multiple dance/theatre productions through Stages Theatre Company in collaboration with Escalate Dance. She then went on to join the Colorguard team at Eastview High School for three years and spent her senior year as part of the staff for the team. During her senior year, she also became part of the teaching staff at Raddatz Dance Eagan after working alongside other teachers as a student helper for six years.
Currently, Sami is a student at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Math in 2021. She is now continuing her education to earn her Master’s in both Elementary and Mathematics Education. Sami has taught tap, jazz, lyrical, ballet and hip hop at both Raddatz Dance locations. She can’t wait to get back into the studio to see everyone having fun and dancing once again!
