Staff

Amanda Singer
Owner/Artistic Director, Teacher

Amanda spent her youth dancing, training in multiple styles. She discovered her love for teaching through apprenticeships, choreographing theatrical productions, and founding a dance program out of the Plymouth Boys and Girls Club.

Amanda studied at both Franklin Pierce University, and Cape Cod Community College and now holds an AA in Dance and Theater, with additional studies in Business. Amanda was part of a pioneer "Teaching Dance for Children" course, a member of Raven Thunder Dance Team, as well as FPU Dance Company and the Winter Dance Concert.

Amanda has been spreading her passion for dance through non-profit organizations, after school enrichment programs, drama club productions, and in studios throughout the South Shore and Cape Cod. Since she began teaching, she has instructed students of all ages, ranging in abilities, from recreational to competitive. Also a licensed Cosmetologist, she has found creative ways to integrate her passion for hair and makeup into the dance classroom.

Having an avid love for pointe shoes, Amanda has spent countless hours studying the structure, various brands, and how to successfully and safely place a student "en pointe."  She has assisted in each pointe shoe fitting of her dancers, and continues to gain insight through pointe shoe conventions.


Outside of DDW ownership, Amanda trained and performed with Coastal Dance Company from 2012-2014, in classical and contemporary works, and was a member of Kinetic Synergy Dance Company in 2015. She is also the former Director
