Amber has been acting as Guelph Youth Dance’s Rehearsal Assistant since 2012. She has had the honour of working with choreographers such as Karen Kaeja, Georgia Simms, Julia Garlisi, Jordana Deveau, Robert Desrosiers and Janet Johnson. Amber has been dancing since the age of four, and choreographing since age 17. She got her choreographic start thanks to the Royal Rhythm dance program at John F. Ross with a piece, You Are the Blood, that has since been featured in the Guelph Dance Festival’s Youth Moves series, Guelph Youth Dance’s Spring Shows, Dance Ontario Weekend, and Spring Awakes. Amber is completing her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Guelph and plans to work with children and youth well into the future.
