Amy Symonds first began dancing in her early teens and discovered a true love for the art a few years later. She received numerous scholarships and awards at conventions and competitions, including a national title, and her choreography has been recognized both regionally and nationally. Amy danced with the Youth American Ballet Company for two seasons performing both soloist and principal roles in The Nutcracker, Firebird, Giselle, and Paquita. Following this time, she expanded her training into modern and postmodern techniques at Scottsdale Community College and at summer programs with NW Dance Project, Camp Protégé, and GagaLabs. Amy has worked on numerous projects and shows with Convergence Ballet Company, Scorpius Dance Theatre, Rogue Dance Theater, JordanDanielsDance, and CONDER|dance as a performer and collaborator. Currently, she is developing her own choreographic voice in addition to teaching classical and contemporary techniques around the valley.
