About The Coach

Amanda began performing at three years old. By the age of seven, she starred in a local South Florida children’s show, KidZone. Her passion for performing blossomed. Before she attended high school, she was offered the opportunity to study with the Joffrey Ballet School on scholarship. During her academic schooling, Amanda worked full time performing with the Ft. Lauderale Ballet Classique. After graduation, her desire to travel the world led her to run away with the circus as a headlining aerialist/dancer with shows such as: Dezire, Cirque on Ice and Four Spirit of the Elements. In 2009 until May 2015, she made the bright lights of Vegas her home performing with Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity and Michael Jackson ONE. Amanda now lives in Los Angeles, California where she teaches her craft to all ages and all walks of life. In 2020, Grounded in Flight, Amanda’s aerial company and studio—was born.
