Ali Dietz originally is from Buffalo, NY, where she grew up training under the direction of her mother, Mary Alice Dietz, at Mary Alices Dance Studio. Ali is an alumni of The School at Jacob's Pillow, has worked with Dorrance Dance, and teaches frequently at Broadway Dance Center. Ali performed at Spoleto Festival USA, City Center in the Fall for Dance Festival, and in concert with Dorrance Dance. She has studied with, and is personally inspired by Michelle Dorrance, Derick Grant, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Nicholas Young, Jared Grimes, and Jason Samuels Smith.

Ali currently lives in New York City, where she continues to teach, choreograph, and study tap dance. She travels quite frequently to set work and teach workshops throughout the east coast. The accomplishment Ali is the most proud of is being the founder of Dancers Give Back, a now international non-profit organization. Now in it's 9th year, DGB has raised close to a half of a million dollars towards cancer research and patient support.
