Danae & Wilder Herrouet
Owners & Directors
Amanda ("Ronnie") White
Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Ronnie discovered dance at a young age, when a friend introduced her to Hip Hop. From there she couldn’t stop and studied every type of dance she could. During summers she continued her education in L.A, New York, and London, as well as attending various conventions with choreographers from “So You Think You Can Dance”.
Her teaching career kicked off in Vancouver, at Dance Xpressions, where she choreographed and taught HipHop, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Ballet, Musical Theater, and Music Video. She has been a member of performing Hip Hop groups, the “Jr Felines” for the BC Lions football team, and the “Cardio Core Fitness” team for The Vancouver Giants hockey team.
From then on, dance became her full-time passion. At the age of 21 her dreams of dancing on a cruise ship came true when Carnival Cruise Lines offered her a position. She then spent 4 years dancing her way around the Caribbean. During her time with CCL she met her husband, which brought her to San Antonio, Texas.
