Amanda Donato began her career at American Repertory Ballet in 2018 as a Dance Power teaching artist. The following fall she took on an additional position as the assistant children’s stage manager for the company’s annual Nutcracker. During her years of extensive dance, gymnastics and baton twirling training she found a love for all things behind the scenes involving studio management and spent most of her off dance hours learning how to run a successful school. That love will serve her well as she now takes on her role at American Repertory Ballet/Princeton Ballet School as Administrative Assistant and Children’s Coordinator. She is excited for this new chapter in her career while still being able to bring her 25 years of teaching experience into her classes during Dance Power.
