Our Story

How We Got Started

Ms. Ashley has over 27 years of dance training. Ashley worked as head instructor for Universal Dance Association during college while also dancing for the University of Kentucky.  After college, she danced for numerous semi-professional teams and cheered professionally for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League.  Ms. Ashley moved to the Santa Rosa Beach area in 2016.  She resides here in Walton County with her husband and three children.  Upon recognizing the rapid growth in our community, she decided it was time to live out her dream and open a dance studio for the girls and boys in South Walton.  Her love of dance started as a young child.   All the instructors at South Walton Dance Company - Studio A look forward to sharing their love of dance with the children of the South Walton community.  
The studio is located in South Walton Commerce Park just 1 mile from Dune Lakes Elementary School. Ashley is so grateful for the support from the community.
A special Thanks to ThiBod Fitness for letting South Walton Dance Company use their facilities. The new location is 274 Serenoa Rd. Santa Rosa Beach, Fl.
