Ashlyn McPhillips

Ashlyn McPhillips

Executive Director

Ashlyn was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and discovered her love for dancing at a very young age. She pursued her passion for dance all the way through college and earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Dance with a minor emphasis on Nutrition & Dietetics. Ashlyn’s first huge ventures after college were establishing her own dance studio in south Austin and becoming the Director of the Austin Lady Vipers, semi-professional cheerleaders for the Austin Vipers football team. Ashlyn joined Dance Another World as an instructor and immediately fell in love with the mission and students she was working with. She is thrilled to now be Executive Director of the organization and working alongside some amazing people to make a difference in the community. Outside of dancing, you can catch Ashlyn chasing after her wildly sweet four year old, Emma.
