I am Kali Ashe one of the creators of Prosody Backstage. Throughout my career I have worked as a dance teacher, choreographer, recital manager, company director, and studio owner. Through these roles I encountered many problems and stresses. As I looked for solutions, I couldn't find anything that fit my needs. Abby and I would frequently talk about what we would love in a software or app that would helps us do our jobs better and easier. 2020 was a rough time for many including me, but one of the silver linings was a new perspective on life. Instead of waiting for the tools we needed we decided to make it ourselves. Did we know anything about creating an app or a startup business? Nope. But we love dance and we love our dance community. Prosody is a product of that love. We learned. We grew. And we created something that we love and truly believe will make a positive impact on our beloved dance community. I love the dance world and I love Prosody Backstage. I hope you will too.
