#20under20: Amanda LaCount

16-year-old Amanda LaCount’s #BreakingTheStereotype movement encourages people to rethink what a dancer can look like.

On an interview with @amypoehlersmartgirls Amanda states, “My hashtag #BreakingTheStereotype refers mainly to dance, and that anyone can be a dancer if they are passionate about it and work hard. It doesn’t matter if you are tall or short, what color you are, what sexual orientation you are, male or female, age, height, thick or thin body type, hair color, how much money you have, if you are blind or deaf, paralyzed, or even if you can walk or not. Anyone can dance if they want to.” When asked what her advice was to young girls she says, “Find what you are passionate about and pursue it with all your heart. Don’t worry about what other people may think. Do it for you and because you love it — no matter what it is. People can tell when you are sharing from your heart.” @amandalacount is truly an inspiration! Check out her Instagram page #breakingthestereotype
