A little about me...

Amanda attended Dancepoint Musical Theatre School and completed an intensive 4 year course, learning various styles of dance, drama and singing. This also enabled her to graduate with a Higher National Diploma in dance. Whilst attending Dancepoint she appeared as principal dancer singer at all of their annual performance shows every year at locations including the SECC and the Mitchell Theatre. During her time at Dancepoint, Amanda was approached by her principal teacher, Robert Hamilton to become a resident teacher at Dancepoint, teaching musical theatre and street dance. During this time Amanda choreographed and trained the school’s under 16’s. She was also was in a huge dance act The Fear Of the Unknown, where she took part in huge European dance competitions.  As well as this, every summer since 2005 Amanda has established a one week summer dance camp in the Kyle of Lochalsh area where she teaches over twenty children from age five and upwards, who have no previous dance experience and is still a great success to this day. Amanda has also developed workshops for the Culture and Sport department of Glasgow City Council leading dance to encourage children to stay off the streets. She has also worked for DRC Youth Health Project and The Prince’s Trust developing a programme to promote healthy living through street dance. Amanda has been working with Razzamataz for 9  years now and now is proud to be the Principal of Glasgow North. She believes that she has acquired many transferable skills in relation to teaching children and feels she brings a lot to Razzamataz with her passion for the performing arts.
