Lily Davis



Lily Davis grew up on a small island outside of Seattle, WA called Mercer Island. As a youngster, she began taking dance classes and performing in show choir at various places on MI. When she was 16, Lily moved down to Los Angeles, CA to delve much deeper into her study and career as a dancer at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. She trained at the academy for 2 years and was able to work directly with Debbie Allen and had some incredible performance opportunities such as performing in the Herbie Hancock Tribute in 2007 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Throughout this time she kept singing but was also taking acting classes and realized a new passion for herself in the theatre!  Upon this discovery, Lily applied and was accepted into the Acting program at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA with a talent scholarship. At Point Park, Lily was lucky enough to be given multiple performance opportunites not only at school but professionally in and around Pittsburgh as well. She was lucky enough to work with Danny Herman, an A Chorus Line veteran her junior year, in which she played the role of Cassie. Just this past January of 2013, Lily was mentioned as one of the “Supporting Female Roles of the Year” in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for her performance of Jane in a more recent play by Victoria Stewart called 800 Words: The Transmigration of Phillip K. Dick. And she just had the pleasure of participating in the Oscar Wilde classic Lady Winderemere’s Fan at the Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre, directed by Alan Stanford, whom she also had the pleasure of working with in her last performance as a Point Park student as Lady Teazle in The School For Scandal.

Throughout her life, Lily has been lucky enough to look up to and be inspired by teachers such as Mary Ann Lamb, Debbie Allen, Sherman Steward, Tessandra Chavez, Danny Herman, Alan Stanford, Monica Payne, and those are just a few of the huge inspirations in Lily’s life as a performer.

Outside of performing, Lily enjoys reading, yoga, cleaning, spending time with great friends and family, traveling, and eating some good sushi!
