Having danced since she was three years old, Amy enjoys nothing more than popping along to Pineapple Dance Studios in her spare time to do a class, going back to her home town to watch Norwich City play football (hopefully not getting thrashed), or printing off some restaurant vouchers to catch up with friends.
