At only ten years old, Asia Monet Ray is known as a true ”triple threat”.  Born in Yorba Linda, California, she first took an interest in gymnastics when she was just a toddler. Quickly realizing she had a natural athleticism and a love for movement, Asia’s parents enrolled her in figure skating lessons with dance lessons soon following. As expected, she picked up both sports with ease and went on to win numerous awards in a short amount of time. Eventually Asia Monet moved on from ice‐skating to focus on dance, which she found to be her true passion. Almost immediately, Asia began outperforming her competition which made her a real threat to challengers of all ages, and she quickly became known as a dance prodigy. Asia’s hard work paid off and, at the tender age of five, she made history by becoming the youngest StarPower National  Championship winner to ever take the title. Her knack for picking up choreography and her ability to engage an audience have made her well known within the dance community. As she enters a new phase of her career, it will be her charisma and amazing energy that take her to the next level of stardom!

Asia Monet beat competitors twice her age to make it to the finale, where she placed third overall to two 13 year-old girls.

    I was flipping thru the channels & came across your show ‘Raising Asia’ & after reading the description, decided to watch despite my disdain for contemporary child performers.. Obviously you are talented beyond belief, that goes without say, but you are also very well spoken, poised, mature & a very like able girl.. Traits like that hard to find not only in ‘regular’ people, but it seems that today’s performers, actors, musicians & the like are severely lacking them, almost all of them being two or three times your age!! Your sister, altho not the focus if the show, is adorable too..Considering she is the baby & that you are the primary focus of the family (especially of your Mothers time & attention) she seems well adjusted to that fact, happy & secure knowing she is loved by all members of your family.. Like you she is EXTREMELY well spoken for her young age… In my opinion, there is NOTHING ‘cute’ about baby-talk at ANY age!! The talent you have is God given & from your hard work & dedication, but your other attributes are a direct result of your parents teaching their children good manners, how to speak to people & that the world does NOT in fact, revolve around THEM..It shows thru in everything you do, from the first time you speak, the way you carry yourself, your poise & confidence..You & your sister are walking, talking, performing examples of children being raised not only right, but children being raised right AND raised to be in the public eye!!
