Dance Lessons With Amanda
I have been teaching dance for 18 years and dancing for 30. I absolutely love all types of dance. It brings me such joy to share my passion for dance with others. I love helping students have fun while building strong technique and performance quality. I have an Elementary Education Degree with a Minor in Dance from the University of Arizona. I currently teach at a studio and Community College. Recently I choreographed the production of The Magic Treehouse in Peoria.
