Dance or hockey…why choose? Amanda loves both! In fact, this next Festival Dance student featured in our Dancer Biography Blog spends every day of the week doing some sort of activity. Amanda says her favorite activities are dancing, drawing, swimming at the pool, and playing sports.
Amanda spends most of her time dancing and playing hockey. Amanda has taken ballet from Festival Dance for many years and just recently started taking Beginning Jazz/Hip Hop. She really enjoys her Ballet 2/3 class because she has learned battements and the instructor, Karissa Jacobs, is “a nice teacher”. Amanda’s other favorite instructor is her dad, Derek, her hockey coach. Her mom, Brenda, and younger brother, Chase, can be found skating around the ice rink, too! Playing hockey as a family is fun because they can all spend time together.
