(Instructor/ Assistant Competition Director)
Alyssa Angieri studied the art of dance under the watchful eye of her older sister, Danielle Cicogna for 20 years. With a mentor so close to home, she quickly grew to extraordinary lengths in the dance community. She was the recipient of Arizona’s Artistic Merit and Leadership Award, and has been recognized and awarded for her passion emoted through dance by many pristine judges. Due to this, Alyssa was also a winner of a scholarship to dance in California with some of the largest names in the industry. Currently she is the Co-Director of the Competition team here at Diamond Dance Works. Her choreography has led the team to numerous overall high scores, and judges choice awards. Alyssa owes her inspiration to her extensive education. She received her undergraduate degree in Physiology from the medical school at the University of Arizona. In order to pass this knowledge onto her students, Alyssa also received a Masters Degree in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University. In her spare time Alyssa Angieri was a member of Black N’ Blue Hip Hop Crew. With her crew she performed around the state, and battled other crews who have been on America’s Best Dance Crew. Alyssa is excited to see her sisters dream of owning a dance studio become a reality. She is looking forward to teaching every student that walks through the Diamond Dance Works door, and is eager to share with them a taste of what it is like to be part of our dance family!
