Amaya’s love for dance first sparked in kindergarten when she attended a school for the arts. Wanting to continue her dance education after being homeschooled, in 2008 she began taking classes at The Studio Dance Company, and has stayed ever since. While at The Studio Amaya has trained in various styles such as Hip Hop, ballet/pointe, contemporary, jazz, and lyrical. She has also performed with The Studio numerous times at Jingle Ball, LDS, Telemundo, and Wild Splash. After volunteering at summer camps for a few years in a row, Amaya began teaching her own classes in 2014.

Amaya is also a cat enthusiast, game of thrones fan, and frequent cookie-butter milkshake consumer.
