Amanda started dancing at the age of 7 years old and is a former student of Holly's! Her passion for dance grew quickly, and so did her interest in someday becoming a teacher. She began teaching her own preschool dance classes at the age of 14, and continued teaching all the way through college. Amanda has taught for various dance programs in the area including the Stockton Parks & Rec and the YMCA. In 2011, Amanda started her own business teaching dance and Musical Theater for a group of homeschool families, with children ranging from 5-12 in Lodi. In 2017, her own daughter started taking classes with Holly which then reopened the door for her to get back to her roots of teaching in a studio. This will be her fifth year teaching at HRDC and she is so grateful for the opportunity to be able to share her love of dance with all of her students!
