Amber Allen dreamed of excellence in performance as a child. Today, as a young woman, she is well on her way to making those dreams truth.
Impressed as a teen by the flawless musical performances of Diana Ross and Michael Jackson in The Wiz, Amber committed herself to years of vocal and dance training to achieve the level of excellence she’d inspired by in Ross’ and Jackson’s performances. Additionally she studied for a short period alto and tenor saxophone before deciding to devote herself solely to singing and dancing.
Majoring in musical theater, Amber attended the University of North Texas and later auditioned for and was accepted to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy: College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts in Los Angeles (AMDA), where in 2005 she graduated at the top of her class earning a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Amber, a Theatre Thespian Award recipient, has starred in such musicals as Into The Woods, Godspell, Forever Fosse, The Cotton Club, and Michael Butler’s production, Hair.
Additionally she directed and choreographed as an assistant Vox Lumiere’s Phantom of the Opera and Metropolis produced by Kevin Sonders Hays, and performed as lead dancer on the national late night television show, “The Mo’Nique Show” hosted by Oscar winning actress Mo’Nique.
Intentionally to sharpen her vocal skills, Amber formed Harmony, a duo performing top 40 cover songs, especially Motown classics. They performed in various Las Vegas casinos for such hotels as The Hilton, Tropicana, Circus, Circus, and Fremont Street. Harmony developed a strong following, which encouraged Amber to more seriously pursue singing. It was at this time she began writing original music, which ultimately required a full band for performance. For this express purpose AmbDyn Alley was formed, a ten-piece band, including background vocalists and dancers.
Today, throughout Los Angeles and surrounding counties Amber Allen and Ambdyn Alley perform with the highest energy and impeccable choreography, ‘feel good’ music originals and covers – for jam-packed audiences. Amber’s commitment to excellence is evident in every song performed.
