SAMANTHA BAKER

MUSICAL THEATRE

Teacher & Choreographer

Musical Theatre General School Program

WSPA Alumni Class 2015

Samantha started taking classes at WSPA when she was three years old, doing everything from Ballet & Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre. Samantha was in MTC Senior/Pre-Pro from 2010 to 2015 under the direction of Ms. Katie Kerwin-Gielniak. She has experience stage managing backstage and in the booth for Holiday Shows, Galas, and WSPA's annual recitals. She used her training at WSPA to secure a job at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in events planning. Samantha moved back to the Bay Area after earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Computing Security from this May from RIT. WSPA has always been a part of her life, as a baby being watched in the main office by Auntie Debbie to calling the 2019 Holiday Show for Ms. Malu. She is very excited to be teaching Musical Theatre alongside Samantha Glean this year.
