The Cannon Falls School of Dance Board of Directors has conducted a very broad search for the instructor that is right for our school. It was very important to us to have found an instructor that is a good role model for our young ballerinas both on the dance floor and in everyday life. We believe that excellent values and the ability to teach classical ballet are equally important. We are proud to introduce to you Ashley Groth.
Madame Ashley Groth received a Bachelor of the Arts in Dance Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2010. Since then, Ashley has trained nationally and internationally with teachers from the Royal Ballet, Alvin Ailey Extension and Jose Limón companies to name a few. Most recently she has completed training with Finis Jung in his Fundamentals of Ballet Teacher Workshop and has been certified to teach Progressing Ballet Technique by Marie Walton-Mahon.
Her training includes a wide variety of dance styles including ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, tap, Irish Step, lyrical, contemporary, musical theater and other various social and cultural dances. While diverse in skills, Ashley loves the poise, gracefulness and challenges ballet has to offer. She feels very blessed and excited to work with the Cannon Falls School of Dance in their mission to train young ballet dancers.
