Ashley was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. She has been dancing and training at Center Stage since age 5. Throughout her years as a Center Stage dancer and competition team member, she has trained in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Pointe, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Acrobatics. She is currently continuing her dance training/studies as a dance major at the University at Buffalo and has been a part of Emerging Choreographer’s Showcase, Dancer’s Workshop, Zodiaque Dance Ensemble, and Zodiaque Dance Company. She currently teaches and assists with recreational and competitive classes mainly in the subjects of tap, jazz, and lyrical. Ashley’s favorite part about teaching is being able to see children express themselves through movement and find that dance is not only a hobby to them, but more of a passion. Center Stage has always been a second home to her and she cannot wait to continue sharing her knowledge and passion with her students. We are proud to have her as a part of our staff.
