Amy was born and raised in Anchorage Alaska where she started dancing as soon as she could slip her feet into ballet and tap shoes. At eight years old she gained a second family with the girls from Dance Spectrum Alaska (DSA) where she continued her training throughout her youth. She was a DSA Company member for 3 years where she studied jazz, tap, ballet and modern, working with both local and guest artists. She began dancing with Momentum Dance Collective in the summer of 2010 and has had the pleasure of performing at different venues throughout Anchorage and Soldotna. In spring 2013, she and other Momentum artists traveled to California to study aerial dance with the bay area company Project Bandaloop, and later performed this new technique alongside the company in their collaboration with the Light Brigade's 2013 production of Over, Beyond, Across, Through (OBAT). Amy thanks the company members for giving her a chance to perform and share her love of dance and music.
