This week in Art 110, I had the pleasure of conversing with the lovely and bubbly Corinne Sampson!
She is a third year at CSULB and is majoring in Dance Science, a major that combines art with science.
Dance Science is basically just dance that incorporates the study of anatomy and kinesiology. With this she plans to fulfill her ultimate dream! She wants to dance professionally for awhile and then move on to PT school. There, she wants to be a physical therapist that works specifically with dancers. What better doctor is there that actually knows and did what the patients do.
Ballet is her favorite style of dance, even though it is the most detrimental. As a physical therapist, she wants to show people ways to be healthy and cautious with your own body when doing ballet. She will definitely be starting a health and dance revolution in the future!
Corinne started dancing when she was 4 and has been in love with it ever since. She loves dancing to jazz and modern. In her free time she likes to draw, paint, and make jewelry. With her busy dance schedule, she manages to have a small jewelry company that makes jewelry from recycled trash, bottle caps, wires, old telephone wires, and even tires. Hailing from Santa Cruz, she loves the outdoors and seems like a nature kind of girl. She loves to go hiking and camping.
Since Santa Cruz is 7 hours north, she misses her family a lot, but believes that moving all the way down here is a good experience for her.
She dormed her first year, like I am right now! But now she lives in an apartment with a distinct style. She says it has a really homey, rustic, 20s, and funky vibe to it. Definitely seems to reflect her bubbly and unique personality.
Corinne was very enthusiastic and was very easy to talk to. She has a great personality and is just a great person who will do grand things.
Here’s her blog for more of her own adventures!
