Ali Ribellino was born and raised on Long Island and began her dance training at local studios. She continued her education at Towson University and graduated in 2015 with a BFA in Dance Performance and a K-12 Teaching Certification. While at Towson she had the opportunity to be a part of many works by her fellow classmates, as well as faculty members and guest artists including Linda- Denise Fisher-Harrell, Runqiao Du, and Christopher K. Morgan.

Additionally, Ali taught students ranging from 2 to 18 years old while completing student mentorship programs at Towson University Community Dance, Shady Spring Elementary School (Baltimore County K-5), and South River High School (Anne Arundel County 9-12). In 2018 Ali underwent the intensive teacher training program with the American Ballet Theatre to become an ABT Certified Teacher for Pre-Primary – Level 3.

Ali has been with AIM since 2016 and feels privileged to be able to share her love of dance with her students and to grow as an artist herself.
