Alyson Stoner

Alyson Stoner is a multi-talented performer who continues to impress with a solid background in acting, dancing and singing. Born in Toledo, Ohio, Stoner's relocation to the Los Angeles area brought about a whole new world of opportunities in acting and dancing. After honing her techniques in ballet, tap and jazz in her hometown, she went on to train in hip-hop dance with such well-known choreographers as Wade Robson, Fatima and Nadine Hi Hat Ruffin (whom she reunited with on the set of Step Up 3D). So it came as no surprise when she auditioned and was cast to dance in the Missy Elliott videos Work It and Gossip Folks. With the popularity of the videos, the young dancer was soon in demand, appearing on Extra, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and more. She also performed on The Jay Leno Show, with Missy Elliott at the 2003 American Music Awards, The Kids' Choice Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. Stoner recently released The Alyson Stoner Project, a dance instructional/music video that launched online.

As an actress Stoner kicked off her career starring in the motion pictures Cheaper by the Dozen and Cheaper by the Dozen 2, directed by Adam Shankman. She went on to co-star in Step Up opposite Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, Alice Upside Down with Luke Perry and Penny Marshall and the popular Disney Channel telepic Camp Rock alongside the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato. She will next co-star in Camp Rock 2, reprising her role of Caitlyn.

On television, Stoner was the longtime co-host of the Disney Channel's Mike's Super Short Show, has been seen as Max in the Disney Channel's The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and made guest appearances on Disney's That's So Raven and the hit series Drake and Josh on Nickelodeon. In addition, she has lent her voice to the award-winning Disney Channel animated series Phineas & Ferb, Lilo & Stitch and W.I.T.C.H., among others, as well as the DVD series Holly Hobbie, Pompoko, Kung Fu Magoo with Dylan and Cole Sprouse and The Little Engine that Could.

Stoner also launched a singing career with the title song featured in the film Alice Upside Down, following it with a remake of Dancin' in the Moonlight (available alongside the music video on the Space Buddies DVD), and next she'll be featured on an upcoming DisneyMania soundtrack. Stoner is currently in the studio writing and recording her own music. Her first single, Flying Forward, was released April 20, 2010, on iTunes.
