    Both internationally as well as in the U.S., Ashley is passionate about her work as a dancer, teacher and choreographer. Primarily trained in New York, she has studied and worked in many different styles from ballet to lyrical, modern, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, and musical theatre. She has had the opportunity to perform and/or choreograph at venues such as Jacob's Pillow, Teatro Madrid, The Gerald Lynch Theater, The Barrow Street Theater, SummerStage, The Highline Ballroom, Spoke the Hub, Webster Hall and the Ailey Theatre. Ashley is also on faculty at Peridance in New York, various schools in Mexico and Spain; and has taught at Broadway Dance Center, Steps on Broadway, and Ballet Arts in New York City, Lines Dance Center in San Francisco, Tony Williams Dance Center in Boston and Round Rock Repertory in Texas.

    She can be seen working alongside artists such as Ricky Martin, NeYo, Lady Sovereign, Nicki Minaj and Mila Kunis, for companies like Pilobolus, Germaul Barnes/Viewsic Expressions, Momentum Dance Company, Fendley's Fingerprints, De Funes Dance, Moochaloo and Balasole, and for brands such as Nike, Nokia, Ursus Vodka, Microsoft, Heineken, Yahoo, and Lush Cosmetics. She has been seen off-Broadway in shows like West Side Story and 3 to 1. In 2008 she was invited to Madrid to teach at the Association of Dance Professionals and choreograph for Spanish recording artist Nuria Elosegui. Recently she performed in Sia's music video, in Central Park Summerstage, in a Boost Mobile commercial, danced in a feature film with Justin Timberlake, and is credited with choreographing independent feature film "The Ride of Tom and Valkyrie". She has toured with the European show "Compradores de SueƱos", premiered the Legendary Dance Project at the Museo del Barrio and has completed her fourth season of New York City's Summerstage.

    Ashley has choreographed and produced several full-length shows for her company DoubleTake Dance (www.DoubleTakeDanceCo.com) , and last summer was very proud of DoubleTake's debut in the City Parks Summerstage festival as well as Carnival Choreographer's Ball. Additionally, last season she can be seen dancing on the Rachel Ray show, directing and choreographing a benefit for Japan and the latest commercial for Fuse TV; and travelling to the west coast, Europe and Mexico to teach contemporary workshops.
