Amanda Thompson is Amy Mucha’s younger sister. She started dancing when she was about 2 and has been dancing and tumbling ever since.   Dancing is her passion.   She has danced competitively for 17 years and has attended many work shops and conventions to continue to enhance her dancing skills.  For her 4 years at Smithson Valley High School, she was on the dance team and an officer for the last two years.  After high school graduation, Amanda auditioned for the University of the Incarnate Word dance team.  She made the team and danced with them until she graduated in 2014.

Amanda loves working with children and teaching them to dance.  Her belief is that dancing has made her a better and stronger person.  She dances every chance she gets. 



The oldest of three girls, Danielle Martinez has grown up around rhinestones and imagination, so the arts are the perfect place for her. She is currently an Honor student at Texas State University in San Marcos, pursuing a BFA in Theatre.


She started dancing in Kindergarten with an after-school dance program at St. Monica's Catholic School. However, at the age of nine, she started taking studio classes when she transitioned into the homeschool world.

Anna Martinez has been dancing for fifteen years throughout San Antonio and surrounding areas. Ten of those years were spent on Amy’s All Star Dance Studio’s resident competition team, the Rising Stars.

She has won several awards with her company in solo, duet, trio and group divisions.


Being on the competition team taught her the importance of team work, commitment, and gave her a chance to grow as a performer at such a young age.

Through dance, Anna has gained many great experiences such as performing for the San Antonio Spurs, Silver Stars, and Rampage half-time shows and her favorite, performing at Walt Disney World’s Magic Music Days 2010. When she’s not dancing, you can find her on stage, as she is very active in musical theatre.


After, graduating in 2016 Anna hopes to continue her training and love of performing in college, where she plans to work towards a BFA in Musical Theatre and a minor in Education. Anna has been on teaching faculty at Amy’s All Star Dance Studio for 3 years, and before that was an assistant teacher for over 4 years!
