Conversations with Amy Schadt

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Schadt.

Amy, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
My story began with the death of my fiance in 2011, going back to college at 43 graduating with my BA in Performing Arts in 2015, getting my coaching certification in 2017, and becoming an entrepreneur at 50.

After his death, I started at ground zero and rebuilt my life and myself into a confident woman who is curious, resilient, and confident. I am an advocate for women’s empowerment and speak on many platforms which include a monthly live event geared towards women’s healing.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, my life has not been a smooth road as a woman and as an artist. I listed the events from the last ten years or so in the previous question. I have been a working artist for over 20 years teaching/choreographing and dancing in Los Angeles. And I also went through a divorce in 2004 that actually sparked my spiritual journey.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Yes, so I have been an educator in the Los Angeles area for over 20 years teaching dance, creating dance programs, then subbing in the charter systems in LA (Math, chemistry, and English) and private tutoring.

Currently, I teach at The Colburn School and Hama Dance Center.

And I have an online coaching business specializing in women’s empowerment.

I am proud of how I always followed my passions and knock on wood…Have not had to sacrifice my art or myself to have a happy fulfilling life.

I believe what sets me apart from others is that I have led an unstoppable and unconventional life where I have found more of myself through every heartbreak, every accomplishment, and every small step I take toward my vision.

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most poignant lesson I have learned….”I am where I am supposed to be.” Then to ask myself, where is the lesson? How can I do and be better?
