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.[13]

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 time she auditioned, but was unsuccessful.[14]

At Amy's previous studio, she danced there for the wrong reason; she wanted to impress everyone because she didn't want to disappoint them. Upon moving to The Next Step, she realized that she could just go onstage and not worry about what everyone thought.[15]

During one summer, Amy worked at a gas station.[16]

Amy is ecstatic when LaTroy returns to the studio[20] and her affection for him only grows, until she realizes that she loves him. She is nervous about telling LaTroy as much, but eventually does from the sheer excitement of her first kiss with him.

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.[5]

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.[7] Although, Amy is happy to find that Piper is not mad at her and is happy on TNS West.[24]

Amy is ecstatic in helping her team win the dance battle against TNS West, even though it means that Piper's team has lost.[25] Amy is distraught when the studio is disallowed from competing at Regionals and is the first to learn of Piper's plan to merge the two teams.[26] Although, Amy's hopefulness in light of the merge is dampened when she is forced by her mother to audition for Gemini[27] and, furthermore, become a member of the team.
