Amanda Schmidt
Welcome to E&E Dance Company!  I’m Amanda Schmidt, owner and instructor.  I began dancing at the young age of 3 in my hometown of Paola, Kansas.  I quickly found a love and passion for the art of dance, and was soon involved in multiple classes and competitive teams at my local studio.  As a high school student, I had the great opportunity to assistant teach in many preschool and elementary age classes.  I continued to dance and teach throughout college, and after earning my degree in elementary education from the University of Kansas, moved to South Carolina where I managed and taught for a wonderful studio.    
Growing up, the dance studio was my second home.  It’s where everyone knew to find me, it’s where I felt comfortable and happy and successful.  This is the environment I want to create for my young dancers.  Dance is about being happy, challenging yourself, learning new things, mastering skills, and passing that warm-fuzzy feeling onto others.    1513749_10102458089426049_6654663974533896535_n
