If Ashley does head over to Dancing, she will be following in the footsteps of fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette alums, Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka and Trista Sutter.
Ashley has a dance background , she teaches dance and minored in dance in college. The show has already showcased her moves in episode two, where she challenged the men to a dance-off to win her affections.
During her downtime from The Bachelorette , Ashley is teaching a dance class at the Maine Dance Academy in Caribou, Maine, according to Colleen Duplessie who runs the school. She told Hollywoodlife.com that Ashley was confirmed to teach hip hop and contemporary dance this summer. Between that and finishing up her dental studies , Ashley is certainly one of television's busiest women!
