Allison “Buttons” was born and raised in Queens, New York and has been in love with movement from childhood. From as early as grammar school to the present, she’s studied a multitude of styles from hip hop to tap thanks to her training at Queens College, various dance studios and her previous position as coDirector of Outburst Dance Company. With this company, she began choreographing on a professional level and has competed across the tri-state area. Allison draws her inspiration from these sources and hopes to continue on as both a creative teacher and a hungry student. She aims to spread her love for movement, life and expression in all that she does.
