Ashley & Allie - From Middle School to Modern Dance
Updated: Apr 18, 2019
Ashley Hill and Allie Batey are native to Maumee, Ohio and met in middle school. After extensive studies in the performing arts they graduated respectively from University of Toledo in Nursing (Allie) and Bowling Green State University in the Liberal Arts (Ashley). They joined forces to co-found Toledo's Human Experience (THE) Modern Dance Co. in 2018 - a 501(c)3 non-profit that celebrates the impact of dance in the community through performance opportunities and outreach programs.
THE Modern Dance Co. provides a place for women in the arts to find cathartic expression and focus in various dance disciplines. The company also refers dancers to job opportunities within the arts and celebrates diversity both within the company and in their many events throughout the yea
It is the goal of Hill and Batey to uplift others and facilitate positive experiences that draw upon each woman's unique experience and our experience as a whole. Both Hill and Batey believe it is imperative to support women-centered organizations that work to Educate, Engage and Empower to participate in feminism today.
The directors of THE Modern Dance Co. want to thank Women of Toledo for the work they do and for honoring their mission for women in the arts. They also encourage YOU to join them in a workshop or class at the Secor Building and find your seat April 27 @ 7 p.m. for The Revenge Art Show - their second cabaret performance at the Toledo Repertoire Theatre.
