Madame Ashley Groth received a Bachelor of the Arts in Dance Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2010. Recently, Ashley trained abroad in Italy with teachers from the Royal Ballet, Alvin Ailey Extension, and Jose Limón companies. 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.
