Amanda Sutton trained in ballet from age 3, with Tamara Statkoun (Kirov), Maria Vegh (Harkness), Marat Daukayev (Kirov). Working with choreographers such as Amy Seiwert (Smuin), Arturo Fernandez (LINES), spending summers with the National Choreography Intensive, and CSSSA at CalArts.After high school she was hired by Inland Pacific Ballet where she danced their rep of story ballets and Balanchine works. She's interested in ballet as a jumping off point for explorations of the body's expressive potential. Chance, gravity, time, and impermanence are important themes in her work. Exposure to Israeli dance has changed the way she looks at the body. Her favorite dance companies are Batsheva and LINES.
