Ali was born and raised in the coastal city of Newport Beach, California. She began dancing at the age of 9. At age 13, Ali began apprenticing for a professional dance company based out of LA, called MusEffect, under the direction of Jessica Starr. She attributes her growth in dance to being thrown into a company where the majority of the dancers were around 6 years older than her. She was the youngest member ever inducted into the company and remains the youngest company member to this day. Living so close to LA, she has had the opportunity to dance for many artists such as Hailee Steinfeld and Alicia Keys, as well as brands such a Reebok and Gap. Ali attended Orange County High School of the Arts as a major in Commercial Dance, until she chose the online education route in order to more seriously pursue her dance career. Ali prides herself on her diverse training and exploration of such a wide array of dance styles that has greatly attributed to her own movement and teaching style. She assisted Intrigue Dance Intensive’s 2016-2017 tour, and through this opportunity, Ali found a love for education and creation that she is continuing to pursue. This past year, she has taught and choreographed throughout the United States, as well as Canada and Costa Rica.
