Miss Ami grew up in Hastings and attended Laton Ash Dance School from the age of 2 to 20. During her 18 years of training Ami successfully competed in many local dance festivals, achieved graded examinations, performed in local pantomimes and shows. It was during this time Ami first assisted young dancers lessons and her love of teaching was created!
