“It was great to watch Amanda in her various characters – the kids love the individual attention she gives; they all walk away with smiles and laughs. The brightly colored costumes and adaptability of tricks and play are great for all ages of audiences. Thanks for joining us this year!”

  • Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival of the Arts, St. Albert, AB

“Amanda Panda, aka, Mandi the Clown has such a great and loving energy when she performs, she has a lovely way of connecting with people of all ages when she is on stage, as she roves or demonstrates/teaches her skills.”

  • Shelley Switzer Artistic Producer, Edmonton International Street Performers Festival

 “Our mission was to have performers inspire children to embrace the joy of creative expression through the arts, Amanda did just that.  She had a positive message that she relayed with her own storybook and throughout her performance”

  • Aum Nicol, Grande Prairie Children’s Festival

“Amanda was a highlight of 2018 BMO KidzArt Dayz! Kids and adults alike enjoyed her engaging, impressive and comical performance and loved being able to learn some hoop tricks after the show.  Amanda is great with kids and it is evident that she is having as much fun as they are. “

  • Twyla Exner, Director of Public Programs, Two Rivers Gallery, Prince George, BC

Library Tours

“She was so fun and such an amazing performer!  Everyone enjoyed her performance and kids asked to take photos with her at the end.  Really happy I got to experience this!”

  • Edmonton Public Library

“She was great to work with! Professional and fun. We had her perform out on the public floor. She used a sound system, and the music volume was great. Loud enough for the audience, but not too loud for the rest of the library customers.”

  • Edmonton Public Library

“Having Amanda Panda at our Library event was wonderful. She had the kids, parents and library staff involved, entertained and participating. She was very energetic and personable. Would have her at the library again.”

  • Lloyd Garrison School, Berwyn, AB

“Amanda’s presentation was polished and entertaining for all of our students in grades K-9. I would recommend this performance to any school!”

  • Mrs. Terry Fast, Principal, La Glace School, La Glace, AB

“Ms. Amanda is instinctively adept at modifying her circus skills program to accommodate a range of ages and abilities.  Her positive nature motivates students and her care and compassion helps students gravitate towards her.  Her new picture book, “Mandi the Clown and the Hula Hoop Circus” was also a highlight during our Literacy Week festivities.  She genuinely loves children and is a kid magnet.”

  • Don MacAskill, Principal, Wembley Elementary School, Wembley, AB

  • Sheri Smears, Rotary Club of Slave Lake, Slave Lake, AB

We will definitely book her again.”
