Asia Monet Ray (born August 10, 2005) first appeared on Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition where she placed third.

Then she joined the cast of Dance Moms in Season 3, on the episode of Watch Your Back, Mack. She departed the ALDC at the end of the third season, although she made a small appearance in the fourth season episode Girl Talk.

Raising AsiaEdit

Raising Asia, a reality program featuring Asia, premiered on Lifetime on Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.[4] The series also featured Asia's mother Kristie Ray; father (and former professional bodybuilder) Shawn Ray; and sister Bella Blu Ray. The series followed Asia's activities and performances as both singer and dancer.[5] It is reportedly produced by Collins Avenue,[6] although in a recent Afterbuzz interview prior to official announcement, Jeff Collins had denied (perhaps disingenuously) any knowledge of the topic.
