Miss Alyssa- Principal
Alyssa has been dancing since the age of six. She was trained at The Ritz Dance Company in a variety of dance genres including Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Contemporary and Hip-Hop.
She began teaching in 2012 after a few years of student teaching where her talent for teaching and choreography was recognised and encouraged. Her commitment and dedication to dance was rewarded with being honoured with Studio Champion in 2009.
As a teacher, her choreography has been highly rewarded at eisteddfods with many pleasing results and placings across both troupes and soloists. Her students have received consistently high results in their Glenn Wood Tap examinations, with herself receiving Gold Awards (98+ in Grades 9-13).
She has been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to perform at many different locations and competitions both locally and nationally. In 2017 she was fortunate enough to be able to travel to America to perform at Disneyland and Universal Studios and take part in workshops with renowned international choreographers.
