October 22, 2018 - NEWS ABOUT NEXT WEEK'S AUDITIONS NOW!


AMY JORDAN'S BOOK RELEASE: DANCE BECAUSE YOU CAN


An incredible event took place at The Alvin Ailey Center for Dance in New York City last week. It was the book launch party for A4D member Amy Jordan's awe-inspiring labor of love: Dance Because You Can: 5 Steps To Transform Trauma To Triumph.

If you don't know Amy, you should. Her journey toward writing this book began on a warm spring day in May, 2009, when she was walking in New York City and in the blink of an eye found herself face down on the street, with her leg pinned under a NYC express bus.

To learn how Amy transformed her trauma into triumph, and how you can apply the principles she used to achieve that seemingly impossible goal, you MUST read this book. Amy's story will pull you in when she reveals the details of her injury, her battle to keep her leg, what it took to learn to walk again, the creation of her Victory Dance Company, and her triumphant return to the stage.

You owe it to yourself to read this book. Amy's story is a compelling read. And along the way, she'll teach you coping skills that will improve your outlook on life and help you overcome any obstacle you're facing, big or small.

Stage legend Chita Rivera sums up Amy's story the best: 'Amy is the most inspiring person I ever met. She is about living, creating, doing, sharing.'

We couldn't agree more! We urge you to get to know Amy Jordan in her new book! Amy truly is the most inspiring person!
