Amy first discovered dance at age four and the passion has never left her. Amy barreled into college with the intent to major in political science and minor in dance, but upon discovering college could grant her the luxury of consistent technical dance training, dance quickly became the major and political science the minor.
Amy first attended Hollins University in Roanoke Virginia where she studied at a two week intensive for the American Dance Festival in New York City. She then transferred to Beloit College in Beloit Wisconsin where she performed in a Chris Walker Afro Caribbean piece of choreography, student works, and in 2010 was honored to perform vignettes choreographed by Merce Cunningham.
In fall of 2016 Amy discovered aerial dance for the first time with Iluminar Aerial. As a company apprentice she loves training weekly in Horton technique, expanding her Cunningham base of modern dance technique. She has began her aerial training on trapeze, lyra, silks, rope, and aerial wall, finding each apparatus unique for expressing her emotions through dance. This is her first season performing aerial dance and her first year with Iluminar Aerial.
