Affirming Arts Studio, Inc.
“Building Character One Step at a Time"
8045 Phelan Blvd., 77706
We began classes as Ashland’s in the summer of 2000 under the direction of Ashley Landry (now Breaux), but the studio actually has a much longer history. Sharon McDonald Flanagan built the studio and then opened her doors in the fall of 1979. Therefore, our Phelan location, as you know it, has always been a dance studio!
Meet Our Current Staff!
Many of our instructors and office staff have been part of our Ashland's family since the very beginning! Some have even been around since before Miss Ashley purchased the studio, when this building was owned and operated by Miss Sharon McDonald Flanagan! Others, who have left to pursue different interests in life, have returned to our studio because of the loving, caring, and supportive atmosphere. All members of our staff take great pride in being a part of the Ashland's family! Our teaching staff has years of dance experience between them and enjoys passing on their personal knowledge and passion for dance to our students! Our office staff is friendly, knowledgable, and always ready to help in any way possible.
