Keith Asberry was born in Chesapeake, Virginia. His artistic development began as a classically trained percussionist and singer within his church. Through such development he has garnered a love and appreciation for performance that has translated into a burning passion for dance. His dance training began in 2014 at Spelman College. While there he has studied under Tracy Lang, Meredith Moore, Emily Cargill, and Deborah Hughes alongside performing works by Blake Beckham, Eli J, and his own choreographed pieces. Through a partnership with the Dunham Institute and the Morehouse College Honors Program, he was connected to Jai Jones of AREA, Atlanta’s Resource for Entertainment and Arts, where he now trains. He has been privileged to study under Robert and Jennifer Mason, LaMia Dingle, Gabby Gambino, Jai Jones, Roscoe Sales and master instructors such as Ed Brown, Walter Rutledge, and Veronica Johnson. He aspires to continue his dance training and one day receive his MFA in dance to accent his career as a performer and choreographer. Intrigued by the transformative powers of dance, he seeks to touch the souls of the world through performance with his own self-identifying principles of strength, resilience, compassion, and love.

I have been a dancer on and off for all of my life but I believe my true talent is performing. It wasn't until I got to college where I realized that my destiny is to be a dancer, choreographer, artist, writer, entrepreneur, etc. I am currently a student at Spelman College where I major in Drama with a concentration in Dance. I am a member of Spelman College Dance Theatre and started my own dance company, Ciara Dianne Dance Company. While attending a historically black college I constantly learn more about my heritage and how important black presence is needed in the dance world and the world in general.
