Alyssa Glanville has been dancing since she was 8 years old. She started in Traditional Folk Dancing and Lindyhop. While she loved dance, she spent a lot of her youth playing soccer, basketball, softball, and showing horses competitively. It wasn’t until she started ballroom when she was 15 that she was first exposed to West Coast Swing. She immediately fell in love with the dance, especially the creative aspect drawn from other dances. Since then, Alyssa has trained in Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, and small amounts of Ballet and Zouk. She uses her knowledge from those dances to enhance her WCS. Now Alyssa trains daily to stay physically fit and loves to practice creative freestyle movement every day. She travels all around the World teaching, performing, and judging. She competes at the Champion level and is known for her joyful and playful personality on and off the dance floor. She graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Communications and Business, and uses her knowledge for effective communications between herself, her students, and her peers.
