Ashley Paige Romines began her dance training at age ten in Sevierville, Tennessee, and continued on to pre-professional ballet training at Central Pennsylvania
Youth Ballet. She then studied on scholarship at the University of Oklahoma and graduated summa cum laude with a B.F.A. in Ballet Pedagogy. Ashley Paige’s
performance experience includes Oklahoma Festival Ballet and Northern Ballet Theatre in New Hampshire where she danced professionally for three seasons.
During her training and professional career, Ashley Paige had the honor to learn from such inspiring teachers as Marcia Dale Weary, Darla Hoover, Mary Margaret
Holt, Donn Edwards, Dennis Marshall, Marjorie Grundvig, Melinda Howe, Leslie Hench, Laurie Jones, Denise Vale, Jeremy Lindberg, Karyn Edison, and many
others, all who helped shape the type of teacher she strives to be.
Additionally, Ashley Paige received her Pilates mat certification through Power Pilates and has used Pilates as a powerful cross-training tool for both herself
and her students. During and after her performance career, Ashley Paige focused more on her teaching, choreography and ballet administration career. Throughout
the Northeast, she taught all levels of classical ballet, creative movement, and Pilates at several pre-professional schools, choreographed several original
works and acted as administrative and rehearsal assistant at Dancing Arts Center in Holliston, Massachusetts. Ashley Paige then joined Springfield Ballet in
Springfield, Missouri, as the Artistic & School Director, where she was integral to transforming the organization into a reputable preprofessional school in
the region during her twelve-year tenure. While there, she choreographed and staged an annual production of The Nutcracker as well as several
original full-length and one-act classical and contemporary ballets. She attended Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s Teacher’s Workshop several times,
which was instrumental in developing the curriculum at Springfield Ballet, from the tots to the pre-professional dancers. Ashley Paige recently relocated
to Denver with her husband. She is delighted to join Colorado Ballet Academy and have the opportunity to share her passion for the performance art.
