When Ashley Torrez was 8 years old she was awarded a full scholarship to dance and train with Ballet Repertory Theatre when their City Dance Program was first introduced in 1995. She danced and trained full time for six years as a young dancer and performed in several productions including BRT’s The Nutcracker, Manuel Flores’s Coppélia, and as Thumbelina in Celia Dale’s Tales of Hans Christian Anderson. In 2014, Ashley decided to revive her love of dance and began teaching and training once again with BRT. She has been honored to be a BRT company member for two seasons and has worked with the following choreographers since 2014; Katherine Giese, Alex Ossadnik, Celia Dale, and Christopher Bornet. Her favorite pieces to be apart of have been as a Twin in Alex Ossadnik’s Alice in Wonderland, Celia Dale’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Helena as well as Dale’s Unusual Road as a partnered duet with Edward Montoya, and in Christopher Bornet’s Amethyst Resonating…In Six. Ashley is excited and honored to get to work with Sparrow Dance Productions this season!
