When not in rehearsals or on tour with Movement Migration, Amy can be found helping people with their real estate needs. Working for Allen Tate, Amy enjoys helping people find their next home sweet home, or to sell their current residence to begin their next chapter in life.  Real Estate is  it’s own “dance” from beginning to end, and I am happy to help others “take the leap.” Connect with her on  Facebook 

You will still find her in a ballet class in Charlotte or New York City as much as possible or on her yoga mat! 

She is looking forward to the next gathering of the company to create another work with a voice that is uniquely Movement Migration.
