Alissa is by far one of the best and most formative dance teachers I've had since I started dance. Not only were her events (boulevard beats, etc) where I fell in love with dance but her teaching (in group settings for micro and fusion and private settings for zouk) has shaped my dancing immensely. She does an amazing job of balancing between teaching technique and technicality with application and feeling, and she has 100% made me the dancer I am today.

Alissa is an amazing talented dance instructor who is a joy to interact with! 10/10 would recommend!

Alissa doesn't give a vanilla lesson like other instructors, she teaches you the proper style and poise right away.

Definitely fun! Brings a solid technical aspect that teachers tend to ignore.

Alissa has been my mentor for zouk for roughly the last six months, and holy wow have I improved so much. Really enjoy the balance between learning new moves and smoothing out more general technique.

I really appreciated the tips on how to lead micro and the core concepts, it helped a ton. I want MOAR.

So. Good. DJs and venues have always been amazing and the one time i had something negative happen to me at an event she stepped in and handled it really well.

Literally the best event in Bellingham I have been to. Phenomenal teaching, music, decor, venue, price, etc. Also everyone wearing black was sexy time.
