Amy is a member of Perth-based Unkempt Dance with fellow graduates Carly Armstrong and Jessica Lewis. The collective formed in late 2010 and performed their first work Tea for Three to a sold-out season at the Adelaide Fringe in 2011 where it was also nominated for the Best Dance Award. An adapted version of the work won the People's Choice Award at Canberra's Short Sweet Dance Festival in 2011, and it was developed again into a full length work for Fringe World in Perth 2012. Unkempt Dance also produced a season for new works by emerging independent artists in October 2012 and have been commisioned by STRUT to run the program again in late 2013.
