We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley, what do you want people to remember about you?
A visionary. I want people to remember that in this lifetime I chose me, through and through.
undoubtedly. indefinitely.
That I held value to my dreams and created the life i desired.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I put dancer / mover because I identify as both and I view those two very differently. I am a working dancer and aspiring choreographer but I am also a mover. someone who just enjoys music and uses movement to interpret, release, express, and explore. Resonating deeply and having a soulful connection with my career path is definitely what i am most proud of. I understand I’m still in the earlier chapters of my professional journey but I have already learned countless lessons; The biggest one being “consistency is key”. I want people to know that i’m here and ready to find my place.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
To preface I just moved to SoCal a few months ago so my experiences are still limited but I would squeeze in a couple beach days to sunbathe and eat at “Good Vibes” in Huntington Beach. Would catch a movie because I love film and movie theater popcorn, Also my friends introduced me to comedy clubs so I’d probably also make a show and grab seafood dinner ! I’d also set a day to try out new vegan food places!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Dear mom, dad, and emily. for all you do and for all you’ve done there’s not enough words to describe, but i can say; thank you for giving me infinite reasons to love you all by choice, than by circumstance. I am me, because you are you.
