Amanda Billings (born December 14, 1986 in Calgary, Alberta) is a Canadian figure skater.[1] She had been expected to contend for the 2006 Winter Olympics, but an injury on December 21, 2005 prevented her doing so.

She trained at the Calalta club in Calgary, with coaches Scott Davis and Sharon Lariviere. She is an alum of Bishop Carroll High School, which is designed for students needing a flexible schedule, and includes a number of other top Canadian athletes.

In 2007, Billings took on the role of Gabriella in the east coast version of Disney's High School Musical: The Ice Tour.[2]
