Ali Pfleger

Ali was born and raised in the costal city of Newport Beach, California. At age 13, Ali began apprenticing for a professional dance company based out of LA, called MusEffect, under the direction of Jessica Starr. She attributes her growth in dance to being thrown into a company where the majority of the dancers were around 6 years older than her. She was the youngest member ever inducted into the company. Ali attended Orange County High School of the Arts as a major in Commercial Dance, until she'd chose the online education route in order to more seriously pursue her dance career. She is currently a member of V Mo, an internationally ranked hip hop company under the direction of Danyel Moulton. Ali prides herself on her diverse training and exploration of such a wide array of dance styles that has greatly attributed to her own movement and teaching style. She assisted Intrigue Dance Intensive’s 2016-2017 tour, and through this opportunity, Ali found a love for education and creation that she is continuing to pursue. Over the past couple years, she has taught and choreographed throughout the United States, as well as Canada and Costa Rica. Most recently, Ali had the opportunity to produce, direct, and choreograph her own full-length show, “Maybe This Time” in the Spring of 2019.
