A teenager taking the dance world by storm wants to prove size is no barrier to being a good dancer. The most annoying thing that people can say to dancer Amanda LaCount is that she’s a good dancer…for her size. The 18-year-old, originally from Colorado but now living in LA, has already danced with major recording artists and been able to travel the world. And yet her dancing ability is still questioned all the time, simply because of her size. Since she first stepped into a dance studio, aged just two, Amanda LaCount has loved dancing. From ballet to tap, modern and hip-hop classes, by the age of 10 Amanda was taking over 15 classes a week; she had also she decided she wanted to become a professional dancer. Eight years later, Amanda has danced in Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish” music video, appeared on stage at the Radio Disney Music Awards with Meghan Trainor, and most recently was a backing dancer for Lizzo at Coachella. But as a plus size dancer Amanda has had to get used to her dance ability being questioned at every step of her career.
