Amanda Spilinga is a visionary, empath, and fierce champion for true self-expression, as well as the founder and artistic director of Alternative Synergy The Company (ASTC), a New York City-based performing arts company that provides opportunities for dancers, choreographers, musicians, actors, poets, videographers, and other creative professionals to showcase their work. With a passion for promoting high-quality dance education and cultivating an environment that challenges artists to take risks, be vulnerable, and break through the conventional, Amanda has driven the success of ASTC since its founding in 2017. Under Amanda's leadership, ASTC has achieved many milestones, including exceeding their crowdfunding goal of 8k in just 20 days through an Indiegogo campaign in 2017, and raising 10k in 30 days for their first production, ASTC The Debut. This successful debut earned the company recognition as a proud recipient of the Brooklyn Arts Council Fund. Our ultimate goal is to inspire and empower our dancers to break through conventional dance barriers and become highly productive and active artists who are confident in expressing themselves authentically.

Alternative Synergy The Studios offers dancers the opportunity to challenge themselves personally and develop professionally as both a resident dancer of ASTC The Company or an independent artist. Our dance training programs are designed to provide high-quality dance education and promote the artistic growth and personal development of choreographers and artists in various creative fields such as musicians, actors, poets, and videographers.
