"During my time at AMPA, I was provided with a range of performance opportunities and a chance to explore and refine myself as a performer. I gained experience in choreographing on a range of people, collaborating on projects, developing my writing skills and managing myself energetically amongst a physically and academically demanding schedule. AMPA gave me insight in to other styles of dance and access to teachers who could provide knowledge in these areas."
