Miss Amanda Stormo – Hip Hop
At the age of three, Amanda began dancing. When Dream Dance Studio opened in 2001, at 8 years old Amanda took her first ever hip-hop class at Dream and it was love at first sight! This is where she truly discovered her passion for dancing/hip-hop. Amanda continued dancing competitively at dream, each year taking on another dance style (contemporary, tap, jazz, ballet) eventually becoming a student teacher. One of the highlights of my competition experience with dream was being awarded a scholarship to attend a 2 week hip-hop intensive in LA. Here she trained at the most renowned dance studios and amongst top choreographers in the industry. Amanda graduated from Roxbury High in 2010, but she knew this was not going to be the end of her journey with dream dance.
She went on to attend the University of Delaware, where as a freshman she joined a dance company on campus, Delaware Dance Fever. She choreographed and taught multiple routines over her 4 years with DDF, including a piece that was performed at the 76’ers halftime show. By her senior year, she was elected as President of Delaware Dance Fever.
After graduating from UD in 2014, Amanda immediately returned to her Dream family as a teacher, and has been teaching at Dream ever since. In addition, she joined a hip-hop crew – High Definition (HD) Crew – to continue training as an industry dancer. With HD, she attended numerous conventions, competitions, and auditions including America’s Got Talent, World of Dance, Prelude, and Artistic Dance Exchange, where her crew placed first overall at the ADE Nationals. She has also been featured in music videos for up and coming artists.
Dream is way more than a dance studio to me – it’s a home, a family, my “happy place” and has truly shaped me into the dancer, teacher, and overall person I am today. I can’t wait to share my passion and everything I have learned with your children!
XOXO Miss Amanda
