 You may have noticed a NEW face at our South Daytona location… Please welcome Mrs. Shannon Bleakley Faller to our Teaching and Office Staff as she brings her knowledge and love of dance to Amanda’s Dance Center. She has been dancing since the age of 4 and also studied (along side Miss Mandie) under Miss Deb. She has done convention, print, television, and theatre work. She was a Walt Disney World performer and has been in numerous musicals. She recently relocated back to the Port Orange area with her husband and 2 beautiful daughters is looking forward to being a part of our studio family.

We also welcome back Mrs. Tami Fricke! She taught our predancers a couple of years ago and will be joining us again this year to share her expertise with your dancers. She will be joined by Miss Megan who has moved from Assistant Instructor to Instructor this season. This is her 3rd year working with the dancers and she is doing an amazing job!


**It’s our 20th ANNIVERSARY!! We are planning some cool new additions to this year’s recital and also to our regularly scheduled classes. Look for our cool new extras in the upcoing months. J

**We are Certified to Teach~ All of our instructors do teacher training workshops, online seminars, and study various curriculums so that we are utilizing every resource to provide quality, up to date training for your dancer. We invest in ourselves as teachers, educators, and counselors so that our students will be successful not just in dance but in life. We are very passionate about the art of dance and we are passionate about creating a positive atmosphere for your dancer to feel safe in and to grow as an individual. We thank each and every one of our dance families for your support!!


As many of you probably know, we have been trying to move to a Port Orange location for the past several years but have not had good luck finding a reasonably priced, central location that would be functional as a dance studio without breaking the bank (ours or yours!) We are happy to announce that we believe we have found the perfect place!! We don’t want to jinx anything or put the ‘cart before the horse’, so as soon as we know it is definite we will give you more details. Just keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward on this new chapter of such an exciting journey! And don’t worry SD residents, it’s only a couple miles west from the current place.
