AMDA Faculty since: 2019
Riley Groot's love for dance was instantaneous when she began her training at the age of 13 in San Diego, CA. After years of competing and winning numerous national titles, she graduated high school and moved to Los Angeles to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy, where she continued her study of dance and the performing arts. She has had the honor of training and working under esteemed choreographers Tessandra Chavez, Brian Friedman, Willdabeast, Janelle Ginestra, Squared Division, Kevin Frey and Andrew Winghart to name a few. Her credits include "American Horror Story", feature films "Heartbeats" and "Summertime", the Billboard Music Awards with the Jonas Brothers, and various music videos, industrials and live shows. She has also danced in three Las Vegas residency shows and is a current member of Unity LA. Riley looks forward to continuing her professional journey and hopes to inspire the next generation of AMDA students.
