Amanda was born in Bonn, Germany to a opera singer father and a ballet dancer mother and so dancing and music was ingrained in the blood at quite a young age. She trained as a dancer and has been performing, making and planning dance since.
She met Kit in 1997 when they were both working on a dance project together. She was dancing and he was playing guitar. Amanda was attracted to his long curly locks and his enigmatic (she found out later that he's just shy) personality. They share a love of all things restorative either for the soul and walking in the hills (Northumberland or the Lakes), the house or special finds from a car boot sale. She also enjoys making things with her sewing machine and listening to music while cooking nice food drinking a cocktail.
Apart from dance and Kit the other love of her life is he son Joshua. He is a chef and works in a restaurant called Kota in Prothlevan Cornwall. His girlfriend is Lorraine and she has a lovely little girl called Bailey Rae. Amanda and Kit are about to become grandparents when Junior will be born sometime in June 2012. Amanda loves the sun and needs to find a warm place once a year. She likes to do this with Kit however he is normally behind the camera and Amanda in a book or in the sea.
