While still in Honolulu, Amanda performed with Ballet Hawaii and Hawaii State Ballet.
She is a member of the corps de ballet with the San Fransico Ballet.
She filmed "Centerstage" while being an apprentice with SFB.
Amanda had a back injury in 2005 and had to be given cortisone injections in her spine to be able to continue with ballet.
Amanda Schull participated in "Midsummer's Night Dance Celebration" as Giselle the 27 of June in 2003 along with fellow star Joan Boada.
The 12 of April in 2006, SFB announced Amanda's retirement from the company.
When Amanda was young, she didn't see ballet as a future career, she despised the lessons. But everything changed when she went to an international ballet competition, and knew some of the most famous people in ballet.
She goes to the Indiana University.
She was selected over 2000 candidates for the paper of Jody in "Centerstage".
She dances in the San Francisco Ballet.
Amanda graduated in Hawaii in the Punahou School.
She is 5'5" (around 1.65 metres).
John Landovsky: She was a little rebel, a real tomboy. She even faked injuries until he caught on to her tactics. She was always cutting corners and really knew how to finagle things around.
Amanda: I've dealt with plenty of competitiveness and jealousy in the past. School was more competitive than the (San Francisco Ballet) company. Once you are in a company, every one is working toward the same goal. We are all in the same boat.
(about the post "Centerstage" attention)
Amanda: Some people tell me the movie got them interested in dance.
(about the Indiana University)
Amanda: They have wonderful teachers, guest dancers and choreographers.
(about her daily massage)
Amanda: We are pounding our bodies everyday, but the company really takes care of us.
Amanda: I'm not bitter and jaded yet. For now, I'm happy and satisfied.
(talking about ballet)
Amanda: It's tough. You wake up in the morning and have to get to work early to stretch and...take class and rehearse and then we perform, and sometimes I don't get home until 11:30 or 12 at night and then I have to ice, I have to sew my shoes, I have to take a hot bath. I have to do all of that, and then you wake up in what seems like way too few hours later and start all over again.
Amanda: We have fun. Sometimes too much fun. We get the giggles and have to stop.
Amanda: I really love San Francisco, it's a beautiful city, but every time I step off a plane here I exhale, I relax.
Amanda: I panic when people recognize me in public. I'm uncomfortable with the whole thing. I don't know what they think I'm going to do.
Amanda: People have gotten parts that I wanted to do ... I just try to be supportive. I hope they will do the same when I have opportunities.
Amanda: I had never seen professional dancers up close and personal. I didn't know how much it could move me. After I returned, I was a different person.
Amanda: I'm happy dancing now, but it is really strenuous work. My body used to hurt and I would just tough it out.
Amanda: I hated ballet so much... both the attention-span thing and having to be disciplined. I would have been so mad at myself if I had not given ballet a chance.
(on being cast as Jody)
Amanda: Last year was certainly a year of record for me. Not long after being offered a place in San Francisco Ballet, which had to be one of the most exciting moments in my life, I was offered a leading role in a movie. It was amazing. In my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd be starring in a movie.
