She attended Mesa State College as both a Dance and Mass Communications major under the instruction of Melonie Buchanan Murray and Matthew Lindstrom. Amy has been instructing and choreographing in the greater Denver area since 2010 and is thrilled to have opened her own dance space, Roots Studios in September of 2019.
