Meet the Instructors

A special thank you to the individuals listed below who have so graciously helped the committee and the dancers through this venture. Without your support and guidance, we would not be able to see our dream come to light!

Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, Ashley Carlson has been dancing since the age of three. She began her training in ballet, jazz and modern.

Marie in 2012, where she graduated from Lake Superior State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing.
