french press design icon Dancer Bio

Alissa has been passionate about movement since her first gymnastics class at 6. She began dancing Lindy Hop and Charleston in High School and found Salsa and Bachata during college. In 2014, she began fusion dancing which led to West Coast Swing, Micro Blues, and Zouk.

Alissa has been teaching and performing Cuban Salsa, Fusion, and Micro Blues since 2015. She has been teaching Zouk and Bachata since 2016.

Partner dance is about efficient communication of momentum, direction, and weight distribution; about mood, frame, and tension; and about comfort, respect, and vulnerability. How do you communicate these to your partner and how do you correctly interpret their communication? A clear conversation is what makes a dance work, and what makes a dance great. Alissa's eclectic background allows her to explore the similarities between movements in different styles, what makes similar movements happen, what sets them apart stylistically. This has been invaluable for teaching fusion, a style she loves for its openness to expression, musicality, exploration and vulnerability.

Alissa's real passion is teaching body isolations, effortless communication, and connection with yourself, your partner and the music in all styles.
