Asia Monet Ray (born August 10, 2005) is the eldest child of Kristie and Shawn Ray.


In 2012, Asia competed in the first season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition where she came in third place.

The following year, Abby Lee Miller invited Asia and her mother Kristie to join the ALDC elite team in the third season of Dance Moms to rival Mackenzie. She remained on the team until The Big, Not So, Easy, where she and her mother decided to depart the team as Asia wanted to retire from competitive dance.

Asia would later make a one-off appearance in the fourth season as part of the Girl Talk episode.
