Alyssa grew up and trained in both New Jersey and New York in dance, musical theatre, and acting, appearing in several musicals throughout her training. She trained classically at New Jersey Ballet (Livingston, NJ), Joffrey Ballet (NYC), and Broadway Dance Center (NYC) and continued her education at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ, earning her BA in Theatre Arts and Dance. While still continuously training and teaching all styles of dance, Alyssa has made guest performances with ballet companies in Connecticut, New York City, and Staten Island.

She has worked through the past two years exclusively at Broadway Dance Center with many teachers, such as Dorit Koppel, Deanna Doyle, Jamie Salmon, Natalia Stavro, and Michele Moreno, as all their ballet assistants while classes transitioned from in person, to zoom, to hybrid. Alyssa has also had numerous opportunities working and performing again in Manhattan since the arts have finally returned! She currently resides in Jersey City, NJ.
