Hello Everyone!!!
I'm so excited to work with you. Here is a little about me:

I began dancing at age three, and turned professional at age 7. I was cast in a children's fitness TV show, KIDZ ZONE. I studied with the Joffrey Ballet School on scholarship before I attended high school. While in school I was in a professional Hip Hop company called Pfuzion. I started teaching hip hop, ballet and lyrical to ages 3-adult in 2003.
After I graduated high school I ran away with the circus and headlined a Cirque style show as an aerialist. I toured the world for 5 years doing this. Then I finally settled in Las Vegas to perform with Cirque du Soleil. I was an aerialist/dancer for them for 6 years until April last year when I moved to LA.
I still teach dance and I currently teach circus arts as well. I have 30 years experience in the industry and I can't wait to share it with you!!!

We did Aerial Hoop (Lyra) with Amanda today and it was fabulous! We will definitely be doing more and recommend her highly.
