Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Schiraldi.
Hi Amber, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Hi, thank you so much for having me! My story really began when my parents enrolled me in dance classes at the age of three, which set the stage for a passion I would pursue throughout my entire life. After attending art schools throughout my younger years, I was accepted to Florida State University, where I minored in Dance and continued my education at local dance studios. It was during my years at FSU that I began to dance professionally for local events as well as train in specialty acts such as aerial and fire performance.
Following graduation, I decided to pursue my performance career full time and went on the road. This allowed me the opportunity to dance for large events and venues across the U.S., such as Ultra Music Festival Miami, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Pacha NYC, and for the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars Clevelander team. I later decided to make a move to Los Angeles that led me to learn from many notable individuals in the Entertainment industry and perform at a wide array of events. I also began teaching dance classes to special needs students, as well as choreographing for special projects. Being in such a creative environment inspired me to eventually form an Entertainment company of my own, AM Talent, to bring my own artistic visions to life.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I work both as an Independent Artist and as the owner of an Entertainment company, AM Talent. As an Independent Artist, I am a professional dancer, choreographer, instructor, and production manager. I believe what sets me apart in these realms is my well-rounded involvement both on and off the stage, as well as my experiences working alongside some of the best in the entertainment and dance business. These experiences allow me to utilize creative freedoms while taking all aspects of a production (or even just a dance class) into account to ensure it is unforgettable!
As a small business owner, AM Talent is a bi-coastal company (located in Orlando & LA) that provides a multitude of incredible acts such as professional dancers, aerialists, fire performers, contortionists, stilt walkers, and more, for all types of events. AM Talent specializes in creating fully customized productions specific to each client’s vision. We hope to elevate event experiences all around Orlando with jaw-dropping, unique & interactive performances! We are also working towards producing a dinner & show experience for Orlando and LA in the coming years.
Who else deserves credit in your story?
Oh man, what a loaded question – there are too many to count! I would say a major mentor in my life was my long-time dance teacher, Hayley Amis. Without her, I wouldn’t have the passion I have today for performing! She continues to support me however possible and allows me to give back to the dance studio I spent so much time in growing up. As for a major supporter, I would have to say, Megan Miller! She is a small business owner herself (shout out to DiscoFreak) and has been immensely helpful in my growth as a first-time business owner. Megan is a former performer and always has great input to my many questions. She also is one of the designers for AM Talent’s beautiful and unique costumes! I’d also like to credit the amazing performers of AM Talent! Without them, AM Talent wouldn’t exist, they are the real MVPs. One in particular, Ava Hildebrand, has been with us since the beginning and has helped build the company into what it is today. Last but not least, a good friend and long-time cheerleader has been Christopher Rivera. Chris is also our team photographer & videographer (Bearlosophy), and it’s him we have to thank for much of our amazing footage!
