Pilates Information

Samantha discovered her love of pilates during her studies at Point Park University. Her professor at the time introduced it to her and since then, she's been addicted. The cross training is exactly what her body needs in order to stay healthy and perform well during long rehearsal days.


When she moved back to Chicago, she met Holly Swanson, owner of Core Chicago Pilates, who introduced Samantha to her certificate program co-created with Jacquelyn Brennan, "THE LAB". Samantha began training for her comprehensive certificate during the fall of 2018. She was immersed with information about the reformer, cadillac, tower, chair, ladder barrel and spine corrector. She applies all of this knowledge in her dancing, as these two movement passions intertwine so well.

Samantha completed her certification in the summer of 2019 and is now teaching at Core Chicago Pilates. She is ecstatic to be certified, and enjoys sharing her love and knowledge of movement to her clients. Her sessions are tailored to each client and their specific needs; regardless if they are a dancer, runner, never experienced pilates before, or recovering from an injury! Although each session is different, she guarantees that her clients will leave their sessions feeling great, and of course sharing many laughs with her.

Samantha teaches group classes, duets, and privates. Check out her schedule, and connect with her to reserve your spot in her class!
