Allison is originally from Holland, Michigan, where she began her formal dance training at Turning Pointe School of Dance, under the direction of Lara and Rick Faucher. She continued her education with Butler University and graduated cum laude with a BA in Dance Pedagogy. During her time at Butler, she gained invaluable teaching expertise and training in a range of styles. She performed both corps and principal roles in full length ballets and original works, including Fairy Godmother in Cinderella and Snow Queen in The Nutcracker.

After graduation, Allison danced with Louisville Ballet for three seasons. She was featured as Myrtha in Giselle and as a soloist in Andrea Schermoly’s Rite of Spring and Tim Harbor’s Odyssey. She performed numerous corps de ballet roles in Val Caniparoli’s The Nutcracker, George Balanchine’s Serenade, Ronald Hynd’s The Merry Widow, and Alun Jones and Helen Starr’s Cinderella.

In the summer of 2021, Allison returned to her home state of Michigan and joined Deos Contemporary Ballet. She performed a variety of original works by Artistic Director and founder, Tess Sinke. When she is not rehearsing or performing, she enjoys teaching, practicing yoga, cooking, painting, and keeping up with dance science research. She is currently pursing a Healthy Dance Practice Certificate through Safe in Dance International.
