Alisa fell in love with dancing at a young age while watching her mom perform with the Russian Ballet. Trained in Ballet until the age of 13 provided a foundation of technique that she still applies to all her dancing. When moving to Canada, in order to keep her love for dance going, Alisa signed up for various dance classes from hip-hop to jazz and even break dancing. She was introduced to Salsa and Bachata in 2013 while living in Calgary, which has since become her biggest dance passion. For the last few years Alisa has been preforming, teaching and assisting teaching Salsa and Bachata classes in Calgary. Since recently relocating to Toronto, Alisa has joined Alma Toronto and Yamulee Toronto and is very excited to continue her dance journey with Dance ConneXion and sharing her love for dance. In a short year she has won numerous competitions including ones at the Nationals (Canada Salsa Congress).
