MISS AMANDA CASTRO – TAP

Amanda Castro is a dancer, choreographer, and instructor who grew up in New Haven, Connecticut and now lives in New York City. In June 2016 she completed her 3rd year touring internationally with Brooklyn based dance company Urban Bush Women (UBW), now celebrating their 32nd year. Amanda was a part of the three year creation of UBW’s latest evening length work Walking with ‘Trane, making its World Premiere at BAM Theatre in NY this past winter into a 2016 Tour making stops at theatres such as LA’s Ford Ampitheatre, Pittsburg’s August Wilson Center, and the United Kingdom’s Curve Theatre.

As a mutli-disciplined artist rooted in rhythm and soul in tap; Amanda was first female soloist to win the first prize at Jared Grimes Run the Night competition competing with her self choreographed Tap solo entitled “Vivaldi”. For a short time she shadowed rehearsals with Savion Glover and Marshall Davis, before hitting the road again with UBW.

Amanda choreographs up and down the East Coast as well as in Canada at many local dance schools and competitive dance studios. Her latest project was choreographing the 2016 American Dance Awards Teen Dancer of the Year Opening Number with over 65 dancers. No matter which genre, Amanda’s classes are a celebration of life; honoring each dancer’s individual story that exist when they walk into the studio. Through her space driven movement and rhythmic choreography, Amanda encourages dancers to find new ways of thinking around their facilities to uplift the power of each individual. Currently transitioning out of UBW, Amanda is on the move in New York City, and can’t wait to see what the winter season holds.
