Amie Kilgore graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2014 as the Outstanding Senior for the School of Dance and the entire College of Fine Arts. While working on her BFA in Dance, Amie earned herself a large number of soloist and principal roles, including guest artist works such as “Tarantella,” George Balanchine’s virtuosic pas de deux, “Firebird,” Ernie Flatt’s stunning pop-classic and “When the Moon…” Bonnie Mathis’s demanding contemporary pas de deux. UA Dance’s esteemed faculty equally rewarded Amie with demanding leading roles such as “And So…” a solo by Amy Ernst, “Her/Him” a lyrical jazz duet by Michael Williams, “Liebeslieder Waltzer” choreographed by Melissa Lowe and James Clouser and “Lifting Love’s Wings,” a solo created on her by Elizabeth George. Among her fellow dance majors, Amie also had the opportunity to perform George Balanchine’s “Allegro Brilliante” as well as “Rubies,” a selection from “Jewels.” Outside of the University of Arizona, Amie spent her summers training with Alonzo King’s LINES Contemporary Ballet, the City Ballet of San Diego, ConDanza Contemporary Ballet, and New York International’s Summer Intensive with Paris Opera Ballet in Paris, France. Excited to have performed for the first time this past winter with San Pedro City Ballet, Amie took on the roles of Spanish and Dew Drop Fairy in the 2014 production of the Nutcracker. Amie continues to audition and network throughout the greater Los Angeles area while working for SeeDance.com.
