It's official!

Amanda is teaching at her dance studio!!!!

We are so very excited, and can not thank Lisa Clement, Director of Precision Dance Center, enough for this wonderful opportunity.

To say that Amanda is excited about this is an understatement. She is really looking forward to sharing her passion for dance with others, and can not imagine a better Dance Director to teach for than Lisa Clement.

As a teacher, Manda needed to have a bio to place on Precision Dance Center's web site:

She was concerned that she did not have enough to put on the biography, but once she started brainstorming she discovered quite a few things. It was fun to walk through memory lane and re-discover all the places she has performed, the conventions she has attended and the great dancers she has trained with and taken classes from.
Mom and Dad are very proud of you, Amanda!!!

Her biography was a little long, and was (understandably) edited for the website. But you can read the full biography below.

Amanda Greenslade

Amanda Greenslade’s feet have not stopped moving since she attended her very first tap/ballet combo class at the age of 5 at Carrie’s Studio of Dance. At the age of 9 she was honored to become a member the dance company and attended her first competition at the age of 10.
Although she has trained in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, hip-hop and has even taken yoga classes, Amanda’s passion is for the cadence and rhythm of tap.

She has performed at several Sacramento King’s basketball games, Disneyland, Paramount’s Great America, Six Flags Marine World, the California State Fair, as well as the Downtown Santa Parade and Roseville’s Holiday Parade and Downtown Tuesday Night.

As a company dancer for Carrie’s Studio of Dance, Perpetual Motion Academy of Performing Arts, Cast & Company Dance Alliance and Precision Dance Center, Amanda has attended several dance conventions including SADA and Co. Dance where she has had the pleasure of taking classes under the direction of Nick Florez, Barry Youngblood, Nancy O’Meara, Gregg Russell, Chebar Williams, Judy Rice, Marguerite Derricks, Katie Scharr and Anthony LoCasio.

Amanda danced with her high school as a freshman as was honored to be the 1st ever freshman choreographer for their dance show. As a member of Precision Dance Center’s award winning Tap Company Amanda feels honored to share her passion for dance, the artistry of great choreography, and a love of music with others around her.

Amanda will be entering her senior year at Oakmont High School (with a 4.25 GPA) in August of 2010. She has been a member of her high school’s Peer Helper Program, Teens for Humanity, Mock Trial, Link Crew and has organized and facilitated the Summer Bridge program for incoming freshman for the past 3 years.

With a passion to help others and make a difference in the lives of other teens, Amanda used to be a Placer County Teen Peer Court Defense Attorney.

Amanda feels that she has had the best foundation of learning and technical training with Lisa Clement as her tap teacher over the past 12 years.

Amanda loves children of all ages and is looking forward to sharing her passion for dance with others.
