Lesson Details

Ballet

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I approach ballet with a combination of discipline and fun! I believe that learning technique is very important but means little if you do not love what you are doing. I primarily utilize Russian style technique but also pull from a variety of other techniques. My hope is to help you grow as a dancer and to enjoy the beauty of the art form.

Hey!

I'm Alyssa and I am excited to share my love of dance with you.

My Passion for dance began at a young age, and has carried through my life. Not only has dance been part of my life, but also I continue to explore dance within educational settings. I studied dance pedagogy during my time in undergraduate studies and received a Bachelor's of Science in Dance Pedagogy. Following graduation, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to study dance and religion, where I received my Masters in Arts in Arts and Religion. In addition to my academic studies, I have been gaining practical knowledge and experience as a dance teacher. Through my years of experience and study, I’ve gained the reputation to guarantee great results, and the skills to get my students to excel in a variety of subjects.

I teach students with a wide array of educational levels and styles, including Ballet, Tap, and Jazz, as well as spiritual dances and embodied prayer.

I look forward to connecting with you and dancing together!
