2012-amanda-200I have been dancing since I was three years old. I’ve trained in jazz, hip-hop, modern, contemporary, and ballet. Although I love jazz dance, contemporary is my favorite style. When I was three years old, my family moved to Japan for a few years, so I actually started my dance training in a foreign country. I was on Alta High School’s dance company and I also did studio dancing at Artistic Dance Studio and Revolution Dance Studio. I had the great opportunity to be on the University of Utah’s dance team after I graduated high school and perform at their football and basketball games. I’m a full-time student studying communications with an emphasis on new media. I hope to be a web designer or developer.

When I’m not dancing or going to school I like to spend time with my family. I am the youngest of three kids. One of the things I am most proud of, is the fact that I am half Jamaican. My favorite movies are any of the Harry Potter films. My favorite food is hamburgers. My favorite burger is the ranch burger from Arctic Circle. My favorite music artist right now is Lana Del Rey.

This is my rookie year as a Jazz dancer. My favorite part about being on the team has been performing at the games and interacting with fans. I also love getting to know all the amazing girls that I dance with, and it’s fun to be apart of such a great team that has so much dedication and commitment.
