Sam Burkett is a dancer and choreographer who somehow also has a degree in Politics.

Known for being both highly creative and extremely sweaty, Sam creates dance theatre that runs the emotional gamut from happy to sad to hungry to gay. Their choreography has been shown in both the UK and the US, and their solo, Crop Tops Make Me Feel Vulnerable, won the Best of Anything Goes Award at the 2018 Houston Fringe Festival. Their work is distinctly physical and theatrical and draws inspiration from everything from professional wrestling to French love ballads. They have performed in works by Jasmin Vardimon (UK), Anna Kenrick (UK), and Teresa Chapman (USA) among others. Sam also teaches, delivering workshops in contemporary dance and physical theatre to professional dancers, people with learning disabilities, and young people.
