Amanda Hillis first fell in love with dance at the age of 5 while taking classes at her local rec center. At the age of 7 she started training at a studio that presented her with the opportunity to travel Southern California performing for different events, television, and making guest appearances for other studios. At age 11 she found her home away from home at Centre Stage Dance Academy!

There she trained daily and was a part of their national winning competition team that she would later choreograph for. At 17 Amanda graduated as a student and officially became a teacher to all ages and a choreographer for the competitive team where she would help her students win national titles and help her students grow their love of dance.
