Ash AssistantProgram

What is an ASH Assistant?

ASH Assistants are an elite group of dancers invited to tour with, assist, and be mentored by Artists Simply Human’s esteemed faculty of world renown choreographers for one full season. During the tour season that ASH Assistants are on full scholarship, they will learn routines specifically choreographed for them by the ASH faculty that they will perform in both the Welcome Show and Closing Show in every city. Additionally, they gain an inside perspective of the dance industry and what it takes to become a professional. Becoming an ASH Assistant is a life changing experience, and is the highest scholarship presented by Artists Simply Human.

How Do I Become An ASH Assistant?

To become an ASH Assistant, you must first be named an ASH Apprentice or ASH Apprentice Runner Up during the 2016/2017 Tour, and then audition at Artists Simply Human’s Nationals.  At Nationals, the ASH Assistant audition consists of ballet, contemporary, hip hop, improv and solo performance.

better dancer, technician and all around person.
Your staff, your faculty’s attention to detail, encouraging
