Alison is a founding member of the Good Women Dance Collective.

She is a graduate of the Grant MacEwan Dance Program and the School of Contemporary Dance at SFU, as well as the Education program at the University of Alberta.
Alison has trained and performed across Canada and been inspired by work with local and international colleagues.

Alison is inspired by the challenge of finding an intersection between being an artist, mother and teacher – these roles constantly demand attention, inform one another and provide diverse perspectives.
