Amanda began her dance training at age 5 in the Frederick area and has been dancing ever since. She was a member of the Urbana High School Dance Company and joined Elite Feet Dance Company for her last two years of high school. Amanda then attended the University of Maryland-Baltimore County as a full Linehan Artist Scholar. There she performed and choreographed many pieces for various UMBC dance productions and was awarded Outstanding Junior in Dance in her third year. She also had the opportunity to perform and present choreography at American College Dance Festivals hosted at Muhlenberg College, James Madison University, and University of Massachusetts-Amherst. In 2014 she graduated with a B.A. in dance and chemistry. She has been teaching dance since 2012 and is very excited to have returned to Elite Feet.
