Amy Peck

Amy Peck star logo tiny

Amy came to SWLA from Southeast Texas, where she was born and raised. She obtained a degree in English education from McNeese; but after 13 years in the classroom, she retired her red pen to join the LNG industry at the nation’s first exporting facility, Cheniere Energy. She is currently the senior technical services administrator and holds a seat on the company’s community investment council as well as the cultural champions team. She is active in community events and enjoys traveling.

While teaching 6th grade English at SJ Welsh Middle School, Amy was introduced to Dancing Classrooms. She was moved by the students’ social, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive growth and is honored to help keep the program in our schools. Amy has never tried ballroom dancing but is confident the journey will grow her spirit and character, just like it did for her students.

During the day, Robert runs heavy equipment and supervises construction for RD Spell Construction; by night he glides across the dance floor enjoying his love for dance. His dancing began as a hobby but quickly turned to serious competition. He has been competing on the country circuit for many years and has won numerous competitions. Mr. Miller holds the 2011 Male Silver Novice World Champion title and 2015 Male Silver Advanced National Champion title.  Robert and his love, Ms. Angela Peck, took their relationship to the next level in April by becoming dance partners and achieved two national titles in Advanced Couples and 2nd place at Worlds this past January. This is Roberts 8th year competing in Mad Hot Ballroom. His routine won the Originality Award in 2011 with celebrity dancer Jill Boyer, Best Costume in 2012 with Debbie Lewing and 3rd place in 2015 with Barbara VanGossen.
