Amanda has been dancing since 1990 and teaching dance since 2006. I was born and raised in Prineville and am a graduate of Crook County High School and Central Oregon Community College. My mom put me in my first tap class when I was three years old and I never looked back. I took tap, ballet, and jazz classes, and my sophomore year of high school I was introduced to the world of competitive dance team. During college I served as an assistant coach for the Crook County Sparkles and danced with The V!be Dance Center in Bend, Or. During that time, I was also an education major at COCC and quickly realizing that the academic classroom wasn't where I truly wanted to teach. In July of 2008, I took over as the head coach for the CCHS Sparkles and we won our first dance State title in my first season. From that moment on I have known that this is the path chosen for me. In 2012 I won the Dance and Drill Coaches Association 1a-4a Coach of the Year. The award is nominated and voted on by the DDCA membership, comprised of coaches and other affiliates from across the state. I've worked with teams all over Oregon at the high school and Junior level as a choreographer and also taught workshops and technique classes. I've worked in studios as a guest instructor and a faculty member. I currently serve on the DDCA Board of Directors where I am both the New Coaches Liaison and the Junior Teams Liaison. I took this opportunity to give back to the dance community that has raised me. It has given me a chance to mentor other coaches, contribute to the growth and change of dance team in Oregon, and to represent an organization that I truly believe in. I am beyond thrilled to see Legacy Dance Company succeeding. We have been so embraced by our community and I hope we can continue to serve Prineville and Crook County well. I am forever grateful to do this with a co-Director who is as tenacious and creative as Ciera; we both truly have a passion for bringing dance to everyone. I am a firm believer that when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. I look forward to the challenges and adventures this will continue to bring!
I spent all of the life I can remember in Prineville. Dancing since I was 4 years old. I still remember my very first tap dance, “Catfish for Supper”! Since then my love for dancing has just continued to grow stronger and stronger. Since then I have danced in just about every style imaginable. Tap and Ballet have always been a couple of my favorites though. In my later years of dance I was an assistant teacher, this was when I realized that teaching was my passion. I knew that I wanted to share my love of dancing with everyone.
I taught in Colorado at, A Dance Place, for a few years. I learned so much and grew so much as a teacher and a dancer. I was able to take several master teaching classes in Denver, working alongside of some amazingly talented teachers.
My world is centered on my daughters, Adisynne (6) and Brynlee (4). This dream I am living is because of them. I want them to know that you can do anything that you set your mind too! Nothing is out of reach!
I have lots of fresh new ideas that I am excited and ready to share with all of you. I can’t wait for this year to start and to get to share my passion and love for dance with all of your dancers! Thank you all for the tremendous amount of love and support! We appreciate every single one of you!
I am the mother of three and graduated with my Associates Degree in Accounting from COCC. Since I was little I've loved seeing the joy that dancing brings to the dancers as well as the ones watching. I have three dancers that attend Legacy Dance and am very excited to be running the office and working behind the scenes for my third year!

My name is Kelli Rudy, I’m 21 years old, and I’ve been with Legacy since we opened in 2016! I started out as an intern, became a coach for our competitive team, and now I am teaching many of my own classes! I love all styles of dance but my favorites have to be ballet and tap. I love the discipline of ballet and the strength it takes to complete every move technically perfect. And I absolutely love the fun of tap and the endless possibilities of dancing by sound!
