Despite an excellent audition, Amy does not make it onto A-Troupe the following dance season due to questioning Emily.[11] As a result, Amy is demoted to B-Troupe.[11] She begrudgingly joins TNS West, but continues to lie to her mother that she is on A-Troupe. Eventually, her mother discovers the the truth, and she is pulled out of the studio.[4] With Piper's help, she makes it onto TNS East, but at the cost of Piper's spot.[6]


Before the show

At a dance competition, Amy performed a solo and ripped her pants while doing the splits. Not wanting the audience to see the tear, Amy performed the rest of the dance with her legs together, even while performing acro.[12]

Amy was once cut from a dance team because she could not master a double-back-handspring-back-layout. She practiced the move all summer in the hopes of making the team the next step she auditioned, but was unsuccessful.[13]

During one summer, Amy worked at a gas station.[14]

Amy eventually comes to like LaTroy romantically and frankly tells him that they should do something about the chemistry between them. In response, she gets asked out by LaTroy which excites her to the point that she tells almost everybody in A-Troupe.[3] When Amy discovers that Sloane likes LaTroy but that LaTroy does not feel the same way, she asserts that she and LaTroy should continue dating.

Amy is ecstatic when LaTroy returns.[19] Her affection for LaTroy grows immensely to the point that she realizes she is in love with him. Although wary of telling him at first, she eventually reveals the truth after sharing her first kiss with him and is over-the-moon when he resounds the proclamation.[20] Amy is heartbroken and angry when LaTroy eventually breaks up with her, and tearfully realizes that he lied when he said he loved her.[9]

When Emily demotes various dancers, including LaTroy and Ozzy, to B-Troupe before even seeing them audition, Amy begins to voice her disbelief, but is silenced by Emily. Despite her excellent audition, it is this outburst that causes Amy not to qualify onto A-Troupe and be demoted to B-Troupe. Amy is left devastated, especially since Piper makes it onto A-Troupe. Amy knows that she cannot tell her mother the truth.[11]

Amy piper dlah

Amy convinces Piper to do a duet with her in order to keep up her lie to her mother.

Amy begrudgingly joins TNS West, but is wary of the lack of technical training in the troupe. Amy continues to lie to her mother and eventually pulls Piper into her lying as well, and gets her teach her the troupe's choreography. Amy unintentionally gets Piper into trouble with Emily for teaching her choreography, angering Piper to the point that she tells her she will not talk to her until Amy tells her mother the truth.[21] Amy is left even more devastated as her relationship with Piper continues to digress.[22]

When Amy finally finds herself feeling at home at TNS West, her mother discovers the truth about her dance life. Consequently, Amy is forced to leave the studio.[4]

Forlorn about being unable to dance and having nothing to lose, Amy takes part in Piper's plan to get her to be an alternate on TNS East. After begging Emily to let her dance, Amy performs some of Daniel's choreography and makes it onto the troupe. Amy comes to realize that she has taken Piper's spot on the team and tells Piper that she will try to get her back onto the team, although Piper is unresponsive to the idea.[6]


Amy is a confident and forward individual who has a sunny and positive outlook on life. Amy is incredibly empathetic and loving and rarely holds an unhappy disposition.
