Amanda Painter

Managing Coordinator

Amanda Painter first experienced DNE’s Dance Camp in 2008, the final year at Camp Omni, and it immediately felt like “home.” A professional astrologer, actor, editor, and writer, Amanda has been stretching recently into one-on-one client work in the spiritual healing arts. She also assisted with copywriting and editing for DNE’s website and online privacy policy earlier in the pandemic. In 2021 she stepped up into the role of Takedown Coordinator at the last minute for the shorter, more streamlined Camp.

In addition to dancing, Amanda adores swimming, hiking, gardening, cross-country, yoga, travel, attending live theater and music, “artsy” films on big screens, immersing in great literature, and staring aimlessly at the sea near her home in Portland, Maine. She’s excited by the many growth opportunities the Managing Coordinator position offers, and looks forward to getting to know members of the DNE community in new ways.
