ASHLEY CHIN

Orange County Performing Arts Academy

After traveling to twenty cities as Teen DOTY, I continued to dance and also became more focused on high school. I then attended Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania and graduated in 2003 with a math major and dance minor. I also studied a semester with the dance program at the University of Arizona. Following graduation I began working for Tremaine Dance Conventions and loved every second of it. I became involved with the Tremaine Teen Company, assisting the program since it began. In July 2006, I married Sean Silva, my high school sweetheart who is a pilot in the United States Air Force. We recently moved to Japan but whenever I travel back to the states, I teach and choreograph for Orange County Performing Arts Academy and work as Desiree Robbins' assistant.
