Reilly Downes

Dance Academy Instructor

Reilly is so excited to start her first season working for ALT as the instructor for Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Jazz, and Contemporary dance. Reilly graduated from West Texas A&M University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Musical Theatre. Some of her favorite roles she portrayed while attending include; Elmire in Tartuffe, Mrs. Kendal in The Elephant Man where she was nominated for an Irene Ryan award for the American College Theatre Festival, and finally Brooke Wyndham in the high energy LEGALLY BLONDE: The Musical.

For the past 5 years, Reilly has been very involved with the Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation and the award winning outdoor musical TEXAS! The Musical Drama where she is best known for the role of cowgirl Parmalee Flynn. 

Reilly is proud to share her love of Musical Theatre, and she cannot wait to instill that same ideal and further her craft through the youth here at ALT.
