ABOUT / MEET THE TEAM

SAM McCAFFREY

CEO/ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Sam joined Dance Woking in November 2010 as Executive Producer. She has worked in theatre and dance for over 20 years. Previous roles have included Artistic Director of Swan Dance, Theatre Director of Wycombe Swan, Head of Community and Development for HQ Theatres, and General Manager for Civic Centre Aylesbury. Sam is a Trustee of Aylesbury Community Trust, which she helped to establish. She believes in using dance projects to liberate particularly young people, in terms of their risk taking in a safe and supportive environment and in doing so build confidence in the participants own abilities and how this then impacts in a positive way with the rest of their work and leads to them taking a more positive outlook on life. She has consistently invested in her own personal development and knowledge, contributing to her being an effective leader, networker and partnership builder.
