While growing up in Toledo, Stoner attended Maumee Valley Country Day School and studied ballet, tap dance, and jazz dance at the O'Connell's Dance Studio. She also modeled and trained at the Margaret O'Brien Modeling Studio. She won Best Model of the Year at the International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Convention in New York City with Ms. O'Brien's studio in 2000, and she won many awards in acting and dance.

Career

Dancing:

After choreography training in Los Angeles, Stoner appeared as a background dancer in several music videos, notably Missy Elliott's "Work It", "Gossip Folks", "I'm Really Hot", Lil' Bow Wow's "Take ya Home", Eminem's "Just Lose It", and "No Tengo Dinero" by the Kumbia Kings. She has also been a back-up dancer for OutKast at the 2004 Kids' Choice Awards and for Will Smith at the 2005 show.She also recently appear in the Debby Ryan's We got the Beat for Disney Channel's Radio Rebel music video. Stoner danced with a dancing group called the JammXKids between 2003 and 2006. She quit the group in early 2006 due to scheduling conflicts, but continues to work with the individual kids in different jobs. She was also one of the dancers in the special features for the Shark Tale DVD. Stoner teaches hip hop currently at the Millennium Dance Complex, and is credited as the youngest person to teach a master class there.

Television and films:

In 2002, Stoner became the co-host of the Disney Channel Mike's Super Short Show along with Michael Alan Johnson, an infomercial segment regarding forthcoming Disney releases. In 2003 and 2005, she appeared as Sarah, one of the twelve Baker children, in the successful comedies Cheaper by the Dozen and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. She has also appeared in several television shows aimed at the preteen market, including The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, That's So Raven and Drake & Josh.

In 2006, she had a small film role in Step Up as Channing Tatum's younger sister, Camille. She currently provides the voice of Isabella Garcia-Shapiro and Jenny in the Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb. Stoner came up with Isabella's catchphrase "Whatcha doin'?" In 2008, she starred in the Disney Channel Original movie Camp Rock as Caitlyn Gellar, an aspiring music producer. Her reception in Camp Rock was particularly strong, with various media outlets suggesting it was about time she played a main character role, having backed up for other big names such as Will Smith and Eminem.

Stoner starred as Alice McKinley in the movie Alice Upside Down, based loosely on the Alice series, particularly The Agony of Alice, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. This was her second starring role, and, according to an interview that appears on the direct-to-DVD release, she states that this was the first time she has had to appear in every scene in a movie.

In 2008, Alyson appeared as a junior celebrity spokesperson in a series of television commercials for the Zaxby's fastfood chain.

In 2010, Stoner appeared in the third Step Up film; Step-Up 3-D, opposite Adam Sevani. She reprised the role of Camille Gage, Tyler's younger sister. Stoner uploaded a video onto her official YouTube page of her final dance rehearsal, which introduced other cast members.

In 2010 Stoner guest-starred in the TV series House as a skater.

Music:

In 2005, she sang two songs ("Lost and Found" and "Free Spirit") from the soundtrack of the movie Alice Upside Down, in which she plays the lead role. She has also recorded a cover version of the song Dancing in the Moonlight for the 2009 Disney DVD/Blu-ray movie, Space Buddies.

Stoner is working with record producers, songwriters and a vocal coach in order to focus on transitioning her style of voice, from "kiddie-pop" into a more soulful pop vibe with a little alternative edge, so she can start working on her first studio album. On April 4, 2010, Stoner posted a video to her YouTube Channel announcing the release of her debut single, "Flying Forward" on April 20, 2010.

Stoner released her debut EP called Beat the System', In Which all the songs are written by Stoner.
