Ashley-Rose Goodwin spends her days balancing the life of motherhood alongside her deep
passions for music and theatre. She began performing theatrically and studying piano in the
early 90s. Theatre has always been a second home to Ashley, so she decided to pursue a
Theatre Studies Degree shortly after completing high school. Motherhood stepped in and
took over in 2006, so Ashley dedicated her life to raising her boys, working on exams for
piano through The Royal Conservatory of Canada and diving heavily into community theatre.
She opened a private studio focusing on piano training and theatrical performance for youth
in 2010. In 2017 she established Queens County Vocal Troupe, a musical theatre group for
youth focused on building self-confidence, vocal skills and performance training. 2019 rolled
around, and Ashley felt ready to return to Dalhousie and complete her Theatre Studies
Program. Since returning, she has been placed on The Dean’s List and has successfully
entered the Music Department, where she has trained vocally for the past year. You will find
Ashley enjoying nature in her spare time, reading, playing outside with her kids or writing.
Ashley is excited to share her vocal repertoire that she has studied this past year & is thrilled
to share the stage once again with Laure n!
