Amelia Lowe was one of the top 20 dancers on #SYTYCD, season 9.

A contemporary dancer from New Jersey, she auditioned for the show while completing her senior year of high school.

Because of the auditions, she was unable to participate in her graduation ceremony from the Morris County Vocational School - Academy for Visual and Performing Arts.

Amelia has trained with Jacob’s Pillow, Complexions Intensive, Joffrey Summer Intensive, & Amber Perkins School of the Arts Intensive.

Nigel Lythgoe, one of the judges & the producer of the show, picked up on Lowe’s retro appearance right away: “We should do your audition in black and white?

Amelia credits her look, style of dance, and the clothes she wears to the 1920′s and silent films.

She likens the silent movies of the 20′s to dancing, where a message must be conveyed without the use of words.

“I just am so fascinated by that whole flapper era and I love watching silent films. The heroines, damsels in distress, the melodrama. But most of all, they’re so much like dancers. They aren’t allowed to talk, but they still have to get a message across.”
