Hello my name is Brooke Ashly and I am an actress, dancer, and model who attended the ARTS Showcase in May of 2009 in Chicago. It seems like so long ago since I was at the showcase, but the success I received after my time there, changed my life forever! At the showcase I was awarded with trophies in the different categories I competed in, as well as, a scholarship to attend the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts. I attended their program and realized that this is the only thing I see myself doing for rest of my life. When I got back from New York, I met with an agency near my home town that I was introduced to while at the ARTS. This agency signed me and I have been booking films, print work, commercials, and voiceovers through Heyman Talent ever since. My biggest film role so far was the role of “Ainsley” in an independent film that premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in 2012 called “The Many Monsters of Sadness”. I was also in the films “Fun Size” that will be in theaters this October and “The Wind is Watching” which will be entering the Sundance Film Festival this coming January. You can also see me on TV in my first National commercial for Cedar Point Amusement Parks that should be playing this season! The experience I received from the ARTS is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget! The dream team staff prepared me for everything I needed while down at the showcase and it has helped me throughout my career still today. I am forever grateful for the ARTS and their staff because if I would not have attended their showcase, I would not be where I am in my career today.
Brooke now works for the ARTS in our international headquarters, attends college, and continues to book work in commercials, print and feature film!
