Amanda was born and raised in Northeast Indiana. She has trained in tap, jazz, and ballet during her dance and cheerleading journey. Amanda attended dance and cheer conventions while in middle school and high school. She was selected as an All-Star UCA/UDA team member for two years.

Amanda moved to NWA in 2006 after she married her high school sweetheart. Amanda and Deric have two sweet, tiny dancers at KDA. She knew KDA was the perfect dance family for her daughters. The Bidwell family has been a part of KDA since 2013.
She has a love and passion for dance and kids.

“I’m so excited to start this new season with our KDA family. Seeing not only my own tiny dancers but also my students on stage makes my heart so happy! Kaleidoscope is such a safe place for the kids to be able to feel a part of something bigger than just dancing. Seeing the passion and the growth amongst the kids of all ages makes all the long hours at the studio worth it.”
