On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition

Season 1

Asia was one of the 14 finalists in the casting final. Asia was the last one to make it onto the show, beating Amanda K and making Asia the youngest on the show. Asia was place into the Hip-Hop trio for ther first week. Asia made it onto the next week but landed in the bottom 3 for her performance. Asia landed in the bottom 2 in the next week but her duet partner Tua was sent home instead. Asia made it into week 4 and then made it into week 5, where she and Lexine were praised as the top dancers for the week. Asia continued into week 6 and won the improv challenge. Asia was able to pick her routine and she passed the week. Asia landed in the bottom 2 in week 7 and week 8 but made it pass both weeks. Asia made it into the finale with Madison and Brianna. Asia's place in the competition was constantly questioned by the other mothers and sometimes even the other dancers because her technique wasn't up to where the other dancers and Abby was always pointing out her sickled feet and other technical mistakes but she was a stunning performer. Asia was the subject of many of the arguments between Kristi and the other mothers, mainly Yvette and Coreen. Asia worked with Abby for her final solo in her mentoring session. Abby and Asia talked about her technique. Asia performed the trio and was caught for lip-syncing the piece and being off. Asia performed her solo as well, which received positive reception from all the judges. Asia placed 3rd in the competition. She was beaten by Madison O'connor and Brianna Haire.
