Allison began dancing at the age of 3 at Gloria Jean’s Studio of Dance in North Haven, CT. She trained in ballet, tap, and jazz and joined the competition team at the age of 9, which she competed with until graduating from high school. As a member of the DanStarz Dance Team, she competed in tap, jazz, modern, and contemporary and qualified for the USA Dance Team for tap, jazz, and modern groups. In 2006, she traveled to Reisa, Germany as part of the USA Tap Team where her group won the silver medal. Allison attended Hamilton College where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology in 2014. After graduation, she moved to Boston and is working as a Research Associate at a small biotech startup, Geneius Biotechnology. Allison is very excited for her second season with DanceWorks Boston and her first season as a choreographer!
