I have been working with Amy Wright on a series for the last three years, and she has constantly shown an outstanding amount of joy and care for her position. The choreography Amy has produced is a perfect collaboration of everyone’s strengths and insights. On another level, Amy goes out of her way to share her knowledge to push each artist to their full potential. I would most definitely choose to work with Amy again.
I love working with Amy! Her energy is contagious. She always has an answer for everything. Such a positive force and a dream to work for.
JORDAN CLARKE , “Giselle” The Next Step, Winner SYTYCD CANADA
“Amy’s work on Grey Gardens with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange was superb, choreographing stylish routines that perfectly reflected the time and mood of the film. She drew on both the quirky movements Little Edie (played by Drew) made famous in the documentary as well as Amy’s own knowledge of movement and dance. The cast and I trusted her to make everyone shine in every take.”
MICHAEL SUCSY, Golden Globe And Emmy Award Winning Film Director, Screenwriter, And Producer

“It’s always a joy to work with Amy. She is my first call choreographer. Cast love working with her and her enthusiasm is infectious – everyone has fun when Amy is on set. Her choreography is excellent from period work, to helping cast look purposefully awkward – Amy’s done it all. Any show will benefit from involving Amy in their dance routines.”
