In late 2021, the Live Your Life author competed with dance pro Alan Bersten on season 30 of DWTS and ultimately placed fourth.

The Dare to be Different Live Tour 2022 kicked off on January 7 in Richmond, Virginia, and will conclude on March 27 in Modesto, California. Amanda is joining the tour for select shows and is partnered again with Alan.

‘I grew up dancing, and I did Broadway for 17 years. Then everything that happened to me, the pandemic, and losing my husband, this opportunity is kind of a way to find myself again.’     

She became emotional as she stated that this opportunity was a way to ‘feel his presence every day.’

In a taped interview, she added, ‘I miss him every single day. I miss every single part of him.’

Amanda said, ‘If Nick could have said anything to me before he passed, he would have looked at me right in the eye and said, you better not stop living. You better keep going.’
