Ayla is a NYC based actor, singer and dancer. Originally from Niagara Falls, NY, she quickly realized small city living wasn't for her although it is where her love of performing began. Since graduating high school, she's lived on 3 continents, 4 countries, and too many cities to count. She has spent the last 4 years combining her love of performance and travel touring in shows like The Book of Mormon Australia and Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage. Ayla recently made her Broadway debut on the reopening night of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical on October 8th, 2021. Being a part of these stories have amplified her need to create and learn even more about herself as an actor. During the pandemic she spent time strengthening her craft with Terry Knickerbocker at TK Studios. Alongside performing arts and travel, her passions include yoga, astrology, rollerskating and loving on her new puppy, Alfie. BLM.
