YW Interview: Amanda Hancox

Dancing Into Transition

After a 30-year career as a professional dancer and actress, Amanda Hancox is now the Executive Director of the Dancer Transition Resource Centre (DTRC) in Toronto, Ont. The Centre assists performing dancers make transitions into new careers by helping them develop transferable skills, explore career options and prepare in advance for work life after a career in dance.

Hancox first joined the DTRC as the Director of Administration in 2002. “I couldn’t imagine a more perfect fit for me at that stage of my career,” she says. “Over the years, in-between my acting roles, I gained experience in administration. I managed the office for a small accounting firm and volunteered as head of fundraising for a not-for-profit organization.”
