Amanda has been teaching fitness for the last five years, but her passion for health and wellness stems from her involvement in the dance community. Growing up, Amanda was passionate about her Ukrainian heritage and dance. Her parents enrolled her in Ukrainian dance classes and that's where it all began. At the age of 18, Amanda moved to Edmonton to complete her BSc at the U of A and dance with the Ukrainian Shumka Dancers. For ten years she danced and performed with the company while also teaching dance throughout Alberta. After retiring from the company and completing her MBA at the U of A, Amanda grew passionate about fitness and eventually completed her professional fitness certification through the AFLCA. She has been teaching dance fitness ever since and is thrilled to introduce her daughter Grace to her love of dance. She maintains her First Aid and CPR.
