Ashley Taravella - October 2015 Viewers' Choice

Thank you to Harlequin Floors and everyone who voted for my video. It means so much to me. I have been dancing for 13 years. I have been studying for the past 3 years at Spotlight Dance Works in Chesterfield, Michigan. I train in ballet, contemporary, jazz, tap, hip hop, musical theater, and pointe. I would like to acknowledge the faculty at Spotlight Dance Works, and especially Liz Schmidt for making me the dancer I am today. I would also like to acknowledge my parents for always supporting me in dance. The piece I submitted was called 'Roam', and it was choreographed by Lauren Adams. I loved learning and performing this solo. I grew immensely through both the learning and rehearsal processes. In the future, I plan to go to college for dance. I would love to dance in a company or teach young dancers for a living. I will be happy with whatever my future brings, as long as it involves dance!
