Azulie Dodson


Azulie Dodson has been dancing almost her entire life. She grew up in Missoula, Montana, training at On Center Performing Arts in jazz, lyrical, ballet, and pointe. Through that studio, she had the privilege of performing at many events and productions, while also receiving special training in jazz from many professionals such as Brad Anderson of Fosse and All Shook Up, and Joey Doucette, who was trained by and taught at Luigi's dance studio in NYC. Azulie attended the University of Montana, where she studied many forms of dance, and received a degree in Communication and an Entertainment Management Certificate. She was also a member and Captain of the UM Dance Team, receiving national recognition as they traveled all around Montana and out of state for games and NCAA tournaments. Upon graduating, she returned to her studio as a teacher. There, Azulie choreographed and trained students of all ages, helping them to compete and train at conventions and competitions such as Tremaine, Hollywood Vibe, MDAA and 24/7. While working at OCPA, she also had the pleasure of backstage managing dance productions and choreographing for and teaching the studio's Curtain Up! Company. After two years of teaching, Azulie moved to California with her husband, where she was lucky enough to find Dancers Edge to call her new "home". She has been teaching at DE for one year, working with students ages 5-16 in jazz, lyrical, and ballet.


"Being new to a town, it is so important to find people and places that fill your heart. And that is truly the experience I've had as a new teacher at Dancers Edge. I am inspired every single day by my students, my fellow teachers, and Marie and Tyler. The staff, dancers, and DE families provide an environment at the studio that is very very special. All of my students have been eager to learn and expand in their trainings and constantly impress me with their creativity, passion, and talent. I am so excited to be starting my second year teaching at DE, it's going to be amazing!"
