Achieve your dream of being a cheerleader!

Allison is an elite cheerleader, tumbler and base. She is able to help aspiring individuals make ANY cheerleading squad!

Allison has experience as head coach, competition judge, NCA Instructor and mentor.

Allison's coaching and preparation includes motions (t's, high-v's etc.), jumps (toe-touch, hurdlers and the like), and stunting to include instruction, proper technique and skills needed to base, fly (partner), backspot and front spot. Allison can also provide tumbling instruction. She can either teach tumbling to a beginner or perfect existing skills. Allison can also provide conditioning classes to prepare aspiring cheerleaders to perform at a higher level and gain strength and flexibility needed for the sport. Allison focuses and dedicates a portion of her instruction on injury prevention with regards to all aspects of cheerleading. She is able to provide coaching for as long as needed in hopes of making the squad. Allison can accompany the individual on the day of tryouts (if necessary or needed.) Part of Allison's instruction includes presentation tips for tryouts to include appearance (clothing and shoe selection), physical shape, and hair and make-up. Allison is also able to craft original responses to interview questions.

She is able to give private lessons or group lessons, which may or may not consist of a stunt group. She will review stunting basics and can also perfect existing skills.

Allison is able to provide lessons at a park or a gym with proper flooring if tumbling (for safety reasons) is desired. She is happy to work out a location that is easiest and convenient for her students.

Allison appeared in the most popular cheerleading movie of all time, Bring it On!

Allison began playing the Suzuki Method at age 3. She tutored for approximately two years while in high school. Allison played mostly classical music. She has participated in five piano concerts, countless recitals, Miss Greek Pageant (Alpha Chi Omega, University of Washington), weddings, sorority events and entertained at Nordstrom as a child every so often. Allison is able to teach piano to individuals with little to no experience. Allison is a very patient teacher who is able to assess a student's needs. Allison emphasized successful practice habits. She believes in perfection before progression.

Allison has a huge passion for nutrition.

She takes a holistic approach to nutrition and focuses on optimal health and well-being. Her approach is very simple and not gimmicky.

She is currently studying to become a certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition.

Allison has studied nutrition for over a decade and has dedicated a large majority of her life to healthy eating and healthy habits.

Allison has experience coaching family and friends with much success. She favors non-conventional ideas in her approach to nutrition and health. She challenges the status quo and prefers single ingredient foods to processed foods.

She is in the process of starting her own non-profit. Her goal is to start a movement and revolution against foods and food corporations whose ingredients and portion sizes lead to a myriad of diseases, illnesses and unpleasant symptoms such as obesity, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, depression, anxiety and fatigue to name very few. Examples of these foods and corporations include Coca Cola, sugar, fast-food and genetically modified foods. There are many many others.

Allison believes it all starts with education.

She is able to delve into your eating habits and will focus on other aspects of your life that may be contributing to weight gain such as sleeping habits, prescription drugs, addiction and the like.

Allison does not favor one "diet." She has experience coaching the Blood-Type Diet, Paleo, Bulletproof Coffee and the Mood Cure, to name a few. She believes there is not one proven method. Rather, she focuses on tailoring a lifestyle to each individual client.

Allison prefers to accompany her clients to the grocery store to assist her clients in food and brand choices.

About Me

I have always loved to dance. Even before I started taking classes I would choreograph dances for myself and my dolls. I began dancing competitively in 2002. In summer 2007 I was selected to be a part of Team Rave, a professional children's dance team. In 2009, I won 1st overall as a soloist at Celebrity Dance Competition, Nationals at Sea.

I continued to dance in High School and led our dance team as a captain my senior year. During this time I also attended many workshops and conventions including CAHPERD, The Pulse on Tour, and The Radio City Rockettes Summer Intensive.

After graduating High School I danced for the Inland Empire 66ers Dance Team in San Bernadino, CA. I started taking dance classes at MiraCosta in 2011. I had many incredible opportunities including performance, choreography, and the privilege of attending The American College Dance Festival in 2012. In spring 2014 I completed an AA Degree in Dance and received a Legacy Award as well as The Friends of Dance Scholarship and Award.

While attending MiraCosta I also had the opportunity to dance in 2 professional movement theatre shows. Both shows were choreographed and directed by Tsofia Gal, an Israeli Creative Arts Therapist and Certified Movement Analysts. Her work embodied the energy healing process experienced by the dancers. I danced a supporting role in FIVE at The Hollywood Fringe Festival in July 2012. In July 2013 I danced a lead role in Perah' at The White Box Theatre.

I am also a certified Zumba Instructor.

I love sharing my passion for dance with my students. I enjoy encouraging them to improve their skills in a fun and safe environment.
