Amy began working as Development Officer Dance & Drama at the beginning of March 2020, just a short time before the country went into lockdown.
“I know everyone has loved keeping fit & active during this difficult time as well as having dance as one of their daily activities.”
Amy gained her degree in Dance in 2012 and has since spent several years performing within the arts industry in various productions both on stage & screen. Amy has been lucky enough to travel the world doing what she loves, performing in locations such as New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK. Within this time she has taught for several independent dance companies as a freelance dance artist across Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Amy’s busy role as Development Officer means that she oversees the programme of Dance and Drama activities for the Arts Service and The Brunton Theatre Trust, delivering many projects and workshops across East Lothian, working in the community and in primary and secondary schools.
Unfortunately due to the current situation all classes have been postponed, however Amy has been leading dance workshops around all 4 Hubs within East Lothian which she has enjoyed
Amy’s favourite aspect about her new role is that she still has the opportunity to teach dance, either through education workshops or at a time like this where dance can be used to support the wider community. She looks forward to creating new and exciting opportunities as well as developing the current programme giving participants the ability to flourish when everything returns to normal.
Whilst not working Amy enjoys going for long walks with her boxer puppy Socks.
