ABOUT ME

Ashe Turner started dancing at the tender age of three. As an African-American person in the United States, their parents wanted them to immerse themselves in African Culture, this led them to join the West African Dance Company directed by Karen Love called Umoja Dance. Ashe also discovered and fell in love with ballet during this time period. This inspired them to train even more seriously with Sharron Miller’s Academy for the Performing Arts, NJDTE, New Jersey Ballet, and Alvin Ailey.  At these schools they studied classical and contemporary ballet, pointe, modern, hip hop, jazz, and tap. At NJDTE, Ashe was able to perform the Nutcracker from 2014-2016. This enabled them to gain full-length ballet experience, and performance opportunities in NYC such as New York Live Arts, Dancespace, and Harlem Stage gave them experience doing contemporary and modern on the stage. Turner also studied nationally at summer dance programs including, American Ballet Theatre, Alonso King’s LINES Ballet, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Manhattan Youth Ballet, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Earl Mosley Institute for the Arts, and Florida Dance Theatre. After high school, Ashe Turner was awarded a scholarship from the Montclair Scholarship Fund for their college studies. Ashe has just graduated with their Bachelor in Fine Arts degree from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee as a dance major. Their studies included ballet, improvisation, modern, hip hop, jazz, composition, contemporary ballet variations, modern partnering, yoga, and ballet partnering. They studied these techniques while also gaining performance experience with the guest and resident choreographers.
