Ava J. Bernstine

Guest Dance Instructor

Ava J Bernstine, affectionately called  Ava Flav, native to Los Angeles, is one of the Industry’s sought-after dancers.  She is a well-versed dancer whose dance style is influenced by, but not limited to her hip-hop, jazz, ballet and contemporary training which is also prevalent in her diverse choreography. 

      Ava has toured the world with artists such as Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and Britney Spears.  Some of her other credits include Usher, Chris Brown, Nikki Minaj, Beyoncé and the feature film “ LaLa Land.”  She has many several appearances on the Academy Awards and numerous other awards show such as American Music Awards, BET Awards the Grammys. 

     Around 2010, Ava took her passion for dance and became an activist for dancers joining like-minded individuals of the Dancers Alliance committee.  In 2012, she sat on the panel representing DA when they won the decades-long campaign for an industry-changing union music video contract through SAG-AFTRA. She is committed to the continual growth and change of the dance industry and the education of dancers.  

      Ava has also worked alongside Debbie Allen since 2001, assisting her in multiple projects and teaching at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy.  She is a young, energetic, and passionate dancer who, although teaches, is humbled and considers herself to still be a student of the art. 

     She enjoys teaching and believes that it is important as a dancer to know your history, and because dance is ever evolving, know where it’s going. Her style is fun, hard-hitting and funky and often has influences from her jazz training. Although feminine, she can get down just as hard as the guys. Ava’s favorite quote: “Why Walk, When You Can Dance?”
