Amanda currently teaches  Body Drop on Thursdays at 6:15pm!

1. When did you start dancing? 

My mother would complain that I started dancing in the womb, but I started taking ballet at the age of 3.

2. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin?

Try new restaurants. I'm a foodie!

3. Hometown?

Denton, TX

4. Who is your inspiration?

Goodness, so many people - Right now, Chi Chi and Jackie Roese have inspired me. These women can see the gifts in others (especially other women) and lift them up. I'm not sure why women tear each other up, we have such low self esteems of ourselves to start. I'm inspired by any woman that has enough confidence to be able to see the positive in others and help them achieve their goals. It isn't common, but it should be. 

5. What are some of your non-dancing hobbies?

Golf, Rowing, and triathlons.

6. What is your favorite dance-related experience?

I used to be a part of a song/performance group at Church and we would do partner dancing. I think I enjoyed it becau...

Dimitrius currently teaches on Saturdays at 10am - Dance AusTONE Fit and 12:15pm Hip Hop Basics!

1. When did you start dancing?

I started dancing at 16.  I was fortunate that my high school offered it as an elective.  I went in thinking I'd just learn hip hop, but my instructor made us learn ballet, jazz, modern, and how to choreograph along with hip hop.  I still visit once a year to go teach a class and talk about my experience as a student.

2. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin?

EAT!  I love to eat and Austin's food scene has grown so much so quickly it's hard to keep up.  Dinner with good friends and laughs are the best.

3. Hometown?

I was born in California, I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but I consider Austin my hometown, to be honest.  It's where I grew up the most.

4. Who is your inspiration?

Too many to list.  A couple (for various reasons) include CL of 2NE1, Ellen Degeneres, Anthony Bourdain, Joan Crawford, and my good friend Kari...

January 5th, 2017 was one for the books!

Dance Austin Studio invited Yanis Marshall to teach Street Jazz and Heels Master Classes last night, and Austin dancers showcased their amazing talent and individuality through the bold and alluring choreography. Before Yanis arrived, the lobby and convention room at Red Oak Ballroom were bursting with energy. Dancers received mini DAS tote bags with some pamphlets about upcoming performance opportunities as well as this Saturday’s Free Day of Dance with Dance Austin Studio. Chi Chi Randolph, DAS Director, got onto the stage to get the crowd excited for his arrival. Dancers warmed themselves up to a dance playlist, setting the night’s tone.

Once Yanis got there, the warm-up began for Street Jazz as dancers focused in on their mind and body. The room swayed in unison as everyone tried picking up the steps, and observers were literally dancing in their seats with Britney Spears’ new single “Slumber Party” playing.

Heels is the unique style the world...
