Meet The Staff: Alyssa
Alyssa has been working here at Dancewear Corner for about four years. She is one of the sales floor supervisors. She helps with warehouse, customer service, and Facebook Lives.
Favorite memory while working here?
It would be how everyone in the store got dressed up for Halloween. It happened to fall on a Saturday, and customers were asking about our costumes. It was so much fun at work that day. We even had a potluck in the break room.
How much dance experience do you have?
Alright, I did the math. It’s 24 years. I started when I was 4 and now I’m 28.
What type of dance did/do you do?
The real question is, what kind of dance do I not do? I have done everything from your studio style technique, like ballet, tap, jazz, pointe lyrical, modern, to a little bit of African and ballroom. Right now, I’m focusing on modern and contemporary ballet styles.
What’s a fun fact about yourself?
I was born on the 4th of July.
What’s your favorite color?
My favorite color changes everyday. Right now, my favorite color is purple of some sort. Or a purple-ish blue.
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
That I can play an instrument, it's the Tenor Saxophone. I was in a jazz band in middle school, and I was loving life.
What’s your favorite music genre?
Another one that changes all the time, but recently I’ve been really into the 60s/70s/80s soft rock. Or mellow classic rock.
How do you relax after a long day of work?
Working out is my time. It gives me a chance to reflect on the day and collect most of my thoughts.
