Apprentice, Social Media Coordinator
Ali Calamoneri is brand new to the Chicago area from Hillsborough, NJ. She began tap dancing at the age of three under Kathleen Cirioli, and quickly culminated a passion for it. She is a 2018 Cum Laude graduate from Muhlenberg College with a B.A. in Dance with concentrations in Performance, Choreography, and Education. At Muhlenberg, Ali studied under Shelley Oliver, where she had the opportunity to tour the Allentown area for two years with a JazzTap Ensemble that focused on community outreach for public schools and assisted living homes. She was also fortunate enough to travel abroad to Arezzo, Italy for a semester, where she studied various forms of dance. She was an Apprentice under The Lady Hoofers in Philadelphia, and is thrilled to have found herself in Chicago Tap Theatre for the 2019-2020 season. Ali thanks her parents for their unyielding support for her to pursue her passion!
