Amy Blackwood

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago Amy got involved with CYT when she was 12 and continued in the program until she graduated at age 18. Amy then went on to choreograph 20 plus shows for CYT Chicago. Some of her favorites included Beauty and the Beast, High School Musical (which she Directed) and Jungle Book. Amy has always had a love for Musical Theater and dance. She studied dance at Belmont University in Nashville, and then continued her training at Columbia College in Chicago. Amy moved to Missouri and was fortunate to be able to teach for CYT Kansas. Finding her way back to Nashville along with her family, Amy was excited to choreograph CYT Nashville’s first musical "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" in 2013. Amy went on to help direct and choreograph some other favorites including Aladdin, Frog and Toad and Annie. Taking a break from theater Amy went back to school to complete her nursing degree. She is now loving working at Centennial Women’s hospital on the high risk OB unit. Amy’s husband Eric is a Franklin native and together they are happily raising their daughter Annabelle who is a 2nd grader at Thales Academy. Her favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans that I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope."
