Audrea Cowan

Audrea Cowan has been a performer since the day she was born. Audrea has studied dance and the entertainment industry since the age of three along side her mom Kristy Ulmer, owner of KJ Dance.

Acting and vocal classes have always been a part of her life and are quite an asset to Audrea's teaching at KJ. Audrea is in her 14th year of teaching for KJ.

Audrea's first big break came at 12 years old when she was chosen from 38,000 kids nationwide as a finalist for the Mickey Mouse Club. Audrea spent a week at the Disney Studios in Florida working and learning along side Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguliara, and Justin Timberlake who were also finalists that season. Growing up Audrea received accolades and the highest scholarships from conventions and competitions around the U.S.

Not only has Audrea worked as a dancer but also an actress. Audrea has been represented by the Kim Dawson Agency, in Dallas, since the age of six. Her film credits include Dr. T and the Women, Slap Her She's French, and The New Guy where she was also the assistant choreographer. Audrea has also had numerous appearances on national TV shows such as The View, Walker Texas Ranger, Larry King Live, ESPN, Queer Eye for the Straight guy and various TV commercials.

Audrea has performed with artists such as Toby Keith, Jessica Simpson, Wayne Newton, Britney Murphy, and Destiny's Child. She has also toured the world performing on stages from Dallas to Iceland to South Korea.
Audrea was on the cover of Muscle and Fitness Magazine in October of 2005. Audrea has done numerous commercial print ads from JC Penny’s to Spirit Magazine.

Audrea was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 2003-2005. She visited many overseas troops in partnership with the USO to provide entertainment for our U.S. military. Audrea now works with the DCC organization as an associate choreographer for the team.

Audrea's level of expectation for her students and intense desire to help each dancer reach their full potential is evident in her teaching. Audrea's high energy and award winning choreography helps to keep dancers to continue to raise the bar of excellence of dance in the DFW area. Audrea's no nonsense approach to teaching has gained respect from students, parents and fellow colleagues everywhere.

Audrea lives in Frisco, Texas with her supportive husband Corley and their wonderful children Kennedy and Kason. The Cowans are active members of Prestonwood Baptist church in Plano.
