Dynamic stories often involve conflict.

Should that conflict lead to violent physical choices, a fight director specializes in developing that movement bringing the story to life so it's affecting for the audience and safe for the performers. 

Samantha has been directing dramatic combat for 10 years and choreographed everything from running into a door to mass battles. 

Her work has been seen on the stages of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Denver Children’s Theatre, Athena Project Festival, Lagoon Theme Park, New York Fringe Festival, The BiTSY Stage, Mizel Center for Arts and Culture, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Denver and numerous other educational institutions in Colorado.
