Modern, Tap, Pre-Ballet Instructor

A native of the Lakes Region, Allison found her passion for movement and “all things dance”  at Meredith’s Sally’s School of Dance.  After graduating from Interlakes High School,  Allison went on to study modern dance at Keene State College and then at SUNY Brockport where she earned her BFA.  As a college performer, Allison was cast in many dance reviews including the American College Dance Festival’s Gala in Buffalo, NY.  Allison brings her passion for creative movement to the Studio where she trains our youngest dancers to enjoy the fun, elegance and energy of self-expression through movement.  Movement also plays a major role in her life outside of The Studio, as Allison works as a licensed physical therapist’s assistant.
