While attending college, Amanda taught dance for the Madison YMCA, and now continues to give back to her community as an assistant pre-school teacher for Somerset County YMCA. From a young age, her love of dance and theater became a major part of her life. She took dance classes 3-4 times a week starting at age 3. She performed in competitions during her middle school years. She was constantly on the move, balancing her extracurricular activities.
When Amanda is not on stage you can find her choreographing dances in her apartment, exploring her vast knowledge of musical theater repertoire, or working with children. Because her passion for theater began at such a young age, she feels compelled to give back and help young children find their passion. From teaching dance and acting classes to being a Performing Arts Coordinator for the YMCA summer program and directing and choreographing 4 shows in 10 weeks (Talk about a challenge!) she is thrilled to see where her career takes her.
Amanda Dunsdon is a New York City and New Jersey-based actor, dancer and wannabe Disney Princess. Currently, she just finished her TOUR with Two Beans Production in "The Cat in the Hat" as Thing 2. She attended Fairleigh Dickinson University and received her BA in Theater Arts with a Concentration in Musical Theater with a Dance Minor. At FDU she was a member of Choir and Fairleigh Dramatics, a student-run theater organization. She also spent a semester abroad in England, which gave her the opportunity to study and critique English Theater, from Blood Brothers to Twelfth Night at the Royal Shakespeare Company (her all-time favorite production she has ever seen!). Since graduation, she has made her New York debut at The Flea Theater. She is working closely with Writers Theater of New Jersey as a reader and actress.
