Mandy has always enjoyed dancing and mostly danced by herself with a few high school and civic musicals here and there. Through various jobs and attaining a MLIS the love of dance was always there, be it just free-form dance to music or trying various dance/exercise DVDs. About two years ago, she took her first ATS class and dance came to the have proper focus in her life. In addition to dance, she crochets, loom knits, reads and writes.
