Alison Hooper Keslake | Owner/Artistic Director

AliAfter traveling the world performing on some of the best stages for the better part of two decades, Alison established Centre Stage Dance Academy in March 2002. As a well-rounded professional dancer, choreographer and talented instructor, her work can be found all over the globe. She has worked and choreographed on stage, film, and onboard cruise ships. She recently choreographed and starred in the MTV pilot “Making of a Real High School Musical”, choreographed The Great American Patriot Award-A Tribute to Bob Hope onboard the USS Midway, had her innovative choreography help new recording artist, Berko, with his first music video, and co-directed/choreographed the Grand opening Gala Performance of the Lewis Family Playhouse in Rancho Cucamonga. A former production show coordinator with Princess Cruises, Alison now finds her home as the resident choreographer for Citrus College Women’s Ensemble and Centre Stage, Inc. She was also the choreographer of the critically acclaimed “An Evening with the Egos” at the Victory Theatre (Burbank, CA) and Breadline Theatre (Chicago, Ill.)

After years of extensive training and performing, Alison’s career took a dramatic change. Rather than be in the spotlight alone, she wanted to share her training and help to create the next generation of stars. Her goal was to open a dance studio where children could be taught in a positive manner and be encouraged to explore their creativity and enthusiasm for dance. Alison’s love for children and her passion for dance has built the academy up to a staff of ten and enrollment continues to grow daily. She lives by the motto “when in doubt…DANCE!” Come and experience the excitement at Centre Stage Dance Academy for yourself!
