A native Richmond, Virginia, Amy Aldridge studied dance with various teachers such as Jacques d'Amboise and Melissa Hayden. At the Pennsylvania Ballet, she's had a meteoric rise, being promoted to the corps de ballet in 1995 and to soloist two years later, finally becoming a principal dancer in 2001.

Among the ballets in which she's dance in principal roles are The Taming of the Shrew and The Sleeping Beauty. She has also had featured roles in dances such as Allegro Brilliante and The Four Temperaments.
