Qualifications: Professional Dancer on the first three seasons of Dancing With The Stars.

Personal History: In Season 1 she was partnered with New Kids on the Block singer, Joey McIntyre, finishing in third place. In Season 2 she partnered with Master P and they consistently received low scores landing them in last place each week, ultimately coming in seventh place. In fairness to Ashly, Master P put little to no effort into the show. In Season 3, Ashly was partnered with actor Harry Hamlin and they were eliminated in week three. Over all the seasons she has also appeared in a few of the professional group numbers.

Ashly was born in Denver and began to dance in the studio her mother co-owned. She has five sisters who are all dancers and all of the DelGrosso girls performed a group number in a season 3 result show. Her sister Afton competed in the Professional Dancer competition during Season 8.

She and her partner, Jonathan Gulledge, won several Amateur Ten Dance titles. On the professional Latin Dance circuit she partnered with her long time coach, retiring just prior to beginning Dancing With The Stars. She comes from the same dance studio as fellow DWTS alumni, Derek and Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas.

In October of 2006, Ashly married a field producer
for Dancing With The Stars, Mike Costa. Together they now have two sons, Ammon Michael and Enoch Daniel.
