ABOUT ALLISON JOHNSON
Allison has studied and performed dance from Miami to Los Angeles. One of the many highlights of her career was taking runner-up alongside her (now) husband on the Dancing with the Stars Live Tour in 2007. She is the proud owner of Love, Laugh, Dance - Broomfield’s only adult Ballroom and Latin dance studio. This is Allison’s 6th time performing in DWBS, and they just keep getting better! Allison loves the opportunity to shine a light on a charity that supports women and children. As a wife and a mother of two, Allison knows it takes a village. She relishes being able to help the YWCA village through dance. When she’s not teaching or choreographing, she’s writing children’s books and dance screenplays. You can find her future bestselling kids book, “Braving Bedtime”, on Amazon. And be looking for her debut movie musical, “All I Want”, in theaters in the not too distant future. Till then, she’ll see you on the hardwood.
