Amy Connerley found her passion for dance and the performing arts when she was cast as an orphan in a regional production of Annie at age 10. That same year she began her training in a studio as a competitive dancer and dancing quickly became her passion. Since then, she has trained in a variety of styles and techniques, now focusing on contemporary jazz, musical theater, and hip-hop. Amy loves bringing energy and enthusiasm to her dancing, while also utilizing her training in different styles.
Amy grew up singing and began performing solos when she was as young as 8-years-old. She has had the opportunity to train with many talented and renowned vocal coaches and has performed with multiple choirs and vocal showcases throughout the years. As a soprano with a strong belt, musical theater is her favorite style.
Amy took her first acting class as a way to improve her performance quality for dance. She had no idea she would enjoy it. Relatively new to the acting world, Amy is continuing to train in acting and loving it every step of the way. So far she has the opportunity to be a part of a variety of short films, promotional videos, and feature films.
Beginning her teaching and choreography career when she was 14 years old, Amy has enjoyed working with a variety of levels, ages, and backgrounds. She has taught classes and workshops up and down the East Coast from New York City to North Carolina. Teaching and choreographing is a passion of Amy’s because she loves to share the knowledge and experiences with her students that have helped her personally grow as a dancer and an artist. Primarily, she teaches contemporary, musical theater jazz, and hip-hop, but she also enjoys teaching ballet, tap, and acro. Amy recently choreographed a flash mob wedding proposal for Broadway Dance Center (she said yes!), and choreographed a first dance for a couple's wedding reception.
Amy graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Business Marketing degree and now resides in New York City. She is currently pursuing dance and performance professionally. Check out more on Amy's website, www.amyconnerley.com.
