Amelia joined Mattoon Academy at the age of 5 in the hip hop recreational class. She did that for 3 years before joining the competitive dance team when she was 8yrs old. Her favorite styles of dance are hip hop, jazz and contemporary. Her favorite dance memory was in 2019 after winning best of the best at dance nationals for the contemporary dance Everybody Lost Somebody. She started assisting dance teachers in 6th grade. She taught some tumble classes the last couple of years and is back to being a dance teacher this year. There have been so many memories and friendships made along the way which we are so thankful for.
