ALYSSA MYERS

Upon graduating in May of 2020, Alyssa produced a social distanced performance for the Yuma community and also received a choreographic residency with Utah Metropolitan Ballet for their upcoming season. She investigated her curiosities in the duality between dancer and choreographer while working on her BFA at the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance under mentorship of William Forsythe, Jodie Gates, d’Sabela Grimes and Bret Easterling. Hybridity within dance styles, musicality and artistic expression continue to greatly influence her desire to create in order to further understand human connection. Read more here.
