Born and raised in Connecticut, Asher began training as a small child who fell in love with The Nutcracker's Russian dance. He has danced with The Lexington Ballet Company, Suspend Productions, Gale Force Dance, and Sonia Plumb Dance Company in roles ranging from the very contemporary ("The Underworld" in Orpheus: A Silent Circus; "The Dream" in 2018's New Works, choreographed by Lexington Ballet's Artistic Director, Luis Dominguez; Telemachus in Sonia Plumb's 2021 premier, Penelope's Odyssey) to the strictly classical (King Theseus in A Midsummer Night's Dream; Drosselmeyer, Nutcracker Prince, and Cavalier in The Nutcracker). Asher has also performed professionally as an aerialist on lyra, trapeze, and hammock with CirqueLouis and Turner's Circus and at several festivals. Asher holds a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology with a neuroscience focus at Indiana University in 2015 and teaches at Danceworks Dance Center in Moosup, CT. He is delighted to be embarking upon his first season with New England Ballet Theatre.
