Spotlight on Amanda Roa
As part of the professional dance company Shoes at the Door, Roa will be performing in the upcoming show Imprints.
Roa received a B.A. in dance from the University of South Florida in 2006. Her jointly choreographed work Apart of Me was featured in the NewGrounds dance festival, Hillsborough Community College Four Days of Dance, and at the Maxwell C. King Center in Melbourne, FL in 2009. In addition to teaching youth ballet classes, Roa teaches dance for our outreach partners including Metropolitan Ministries, Redlands Christian Migrant Association, and the Parkinson's group at USF.
Imprints, the first full-length show of Shoes at the Door, is a modern dance performance.
“There’s a nice variety in the choreography, so I think it’s a show that everyone will enjoy,” said Roa.
Check out Roa and her fellow dance company members in Imprints, playing Aug. 28th at USF Theatre I at 3pm and 8pm. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. For more information, visit shoesatthedoor.org.
