Ashlee Caroline Langas was a top 20 finalist on the third season of Fox Television’s dance contest series So You Think You Can Dance. She says that she has no nickname, and that she started dancing at the age of two. Her formal dance training spans though a number of schools and programs, such as Gotta Dance for eight years, Danceworks and the Fox Troupe for one year, the Candy Crocker School of Dance for six years, and the Kilgore College Dance Department from 2005 to 2007. Ashlee classifies her dance style as contemporary, and says that her favorite professional dancer is Mia Michaels.
Apart from dancing, she also enjoys working out and reading. No one else in her family dances professionally, and she has yet to perform in any public functions or musical theater productions as a dancer. She also wishes for bigger career opportunities to meet her ambitions after the show, and plans to both work as a teacher and choreographer while traveling abroad within the next ten years. Ashlee says that her most memorable dance experience was performing as a Kilgore College Sophomore Rangerette during their homecoming halftime in 2006. She was the first female participant to be eliminated from the show on June 14, along with male contestant Ricky Palomino.Exclusive interview: Ashlee Langas
