About Ashlee:
Ashlee found her love of dance at a young age and grew up with music and movement playing a big part of her life. She stumbled upon her first Belly Dance class in 2006 and fell in love. Having taken multiple workshops and classes over the years Ashlee is an avid seeker of learning and challenging herself to seek out new knowledge and actively develop new skills. As of early this year she has gained her certification as a SharQui bellydance® instructor.
She is grateful for the all the experiences and the amazing people that belly dance have brought in to her life.
She looks forward to “shimmying” with you soon!
