Currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, Amanda has taught dance classes at various studios and is a part of the newly founded girls group EVA, directed by Sabra Johnson.
Amanda is a versatile dancer who enjoys ballet beautiful technique as much as she loves African movement and music.
She continues to learn and train in new styles of dance to keep developing her movement and inspiring those who love dance to do the same.
