Alyssa started West Coast Swing about 9 years ago, and immediately fell in love with the dance, especially the creative aspect drawn from other dances. She uses her experience in Lindyhop, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Jazz, and Ballet to enhance her West Coast Swing. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area has also given her many opportunities to teach and grow in her own dance.
Together with her partner, John Kirkconnell, Alyssa competes on the Swing Circuit in the Champions division. They have traveled around North America, Europe and Asia spreading their personal love for Swing. Their partnership emphasizes musicality and connection.
