It’s impossible to look at Allison (Ally) Roles and not immediately want to squeeze her cheeks and tell her how cute she is. The doe-eyed darling’s smile and spunky attitude are contagious — so it’s no surprise the 11-year-old from Dancensations Dance Center in Alexandria, VA, is our latest Jo+Jax Fan of the Month! What is a surprise is that Ally only started dancing three years ago! Before that, she was an avid ice skater.
Now, Ally loves jazz and contemporary, and has the talent — and trophies — to prove it. She is an Artists Simply Human Apprentice, a New York City Dance Alliance highest scoring soloist and an Outstanding Dancer Runner-Up. She has also received a Wild Scholarship, and has been named Junior Miss Imagine, Junior Miss Shake the Ground, and Junior Miss Dance KAR. Phew! (Can we get a “who run the world?!”) Read on to learn more about Ally, our April Fan of the Month, and follow her on Instagram @dancer_girl_ally_05.
