Amanda Gustafson began her dance training at the age of 5 in Southwest Iowa and has been dancing ever since. She competed with her dance studio for 7 years. Traveling to regional and national competitions led her to New York City multiple times where she spent weeks in the summer training with nationally acclaimed choreographers. She graduated from Elk Horn – Kimballton Community School in 2014 and attended The University of Iowa the following fall semester where she is currently majoring in Dance and working towards a certificate in Performing Arts Entrepreneurship. Amanda has had experience in teaching and choreographing for 5 years. She teaches many different classes; her specialty classes are Lyrical and Acro.
