I started off dancing in kindergarten, doing West African with my fav dance teacher Mrs. Pilar Lowden. I danced for her almost every year till 11th grade. She trained me in tap, modern, contemporary, ballet, disco.. etc. She expanded my entire dance knowledge! After I went to college, I started my own dance team, called Hypnotik, where we performed at multiple events at the school and even had shows in Atlanta. All the while, I started wanting to take up acting. I started doing extra work in Atlanta when I could which was rare.
After I finally graduated college, I quit my job, moved to Atlanta and started training, doing more extra work, and researching, getting to know more about what I should be doing to expand myself and how I should be doing it. After training and going to many auditions, after auditions, after auditions I landed a SAG role, on American Soul Season 1 thanks to 411South Talent and choreographers, Fatima Robinson and Adrian Wiltshire. Keep in mind I was 5 months pregnant at the time! Kudos to me. After that I knew there was in store for me and since then I’ve continued to work through them and for them for different movies, tv shows, and events that I’m eternally grateful for because that allowed me to be SAG-Eligible
Now, I am still dancing, acting and have worked in several independent films, short films, web series and looking forward to the first SAG speaking role. Continue Reading Meet Ashanti Harris
