Brief Biographical Sketch:

My name is Amanda Bernett. I am a third year student who hails from the distant lands of Chicago, studying Biology, Dance, and Psychology. I love to dance in any spare time I have, and accordingly, am heavily involved with two dance groups on campus, Steam Heat Dance Company (treasurer) and Refresh Dance Crew, as a dancer/performer and choreographer. In addition, I am involved in New Movement Project (secretary), and participate in events held by the biology student association (BSA) and the undergraduate premedical society (UPS). Over the years I have trained in acrobatics and tumbling, jazz, hip-hop, tap, lyrical/contemporary, modern, musical theater, cheer, and ballet. I have taught acrobatics and intermediate hip-hop in a studio setting, and have also taught three open classes through Refresh Dance Crew. I love teaching and getting to dance with inspiring young people.
