Amy reconstructed Fred Berk's 1953 "Holiday in Israel" from Lucy Venable's 1977 score and wrote a thesis on the significance of Israeli folk dance in cultural identity for her MFA in dance notation. For her BA Theatre with Distinction project and thesis "Let's Have a Dance...The Significance of Social Dance in Shakespeare" she directed scenes from Shakespearean plays that involved or referenced Renaissance period dances. She has taught at CCA for six years and been an administrator since 2009; her classes have included ballet, pointe, modern, theatre, tambourine and social dancing. Amy is blissfully married to Matthew and enjoys being a mother to David Arn and Eleanor Lillian. Her goals include nurturing worshippers, directing movement in theatre, notating worship dances (score and video), training a production management team, and spreading the love of God through hugs.
