Bio: Alissa was swept up into the many worlds of social partner dancing 12 years ago. Since then she’s brought it back home dancing to the music she grew up on, the blues. Emphasizing technical prowess, cultural context and meaningful expression through movement, Alissa creates class environments that are both highly educational and personally affecting. She sees dance as an avenue for fun, emotive and respectful social connection.

Based in Washington, D.C. Alissa regularly teaches Blues Dance at Emergence Community Arts Collective and Glen Echo Park. She also teaches Partnered Fusion Dance. With a movement background spanning everything from salsa to acrobatics to belly dance, Alissa loves inspiring students with new ways to combine and apply dance styles to traditional and electronic music.
