This is Alyssa’s 3rd year on Beyond Words, and she is so thrilled to be a part of the team and to be training with Miss Kate! Alyssa started dancing when she was 2, and began dancing competitively at age 5 with Impact Dance Company and then with Expression Dance Company, where she was honored with her first solo at age 9. Alyssa has also trained on pointe with Cindy Zaeske, and last year she assisted Ms. Cindy with her ballet classes.
Throughout her dance career, Alyssa has received many awards and scholarships, including being selected to perform in the Fashion Show at Pulse and receiving the All Star award at Camp Kate. Alyssa also had the amazing opportunity to perform in Miss Kate’s professional show, Tabula Rasa, at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago with BW and The Kate Jablonski Statement. She learned so much from this experience!
Alyssa is an honor student in the 8th grade and a member of the National Junior Honor Society. When she’s not dancing she enjoys taking tumbling classes, hanging out with friends, and spending time with her little brother. Alyssa would like to thank Miss Mickey, Miss Amber, and Miss Kate for inspiring her to dance. She also thanks her parents and her two brothers, Zach and Nick, for their love and support. Without them, she would not be able to live out her dream!
