Short Bio

Alyssa Haney holds an M.A. in Dance Theories and Practices from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, where she studied under Dr. Jill Green, B.J Sullivan, Cynthia Ling Lee, and Dr. Ana Paula Hofling. She served as a department TA, teaching courses in ballet and dance appreciation, as well as the President of the Association for Graduate Students in Dance. Her thesis research focused on gender, race, and class in neo-burlesque performance, and she presented that research at the Congress on Research in Dance conference. She received her B.F.A. in Dance and History from Tulane University, where she was a member of the Newcomb Dance Company and performed faculty works by Alice Pascal Escher, Barbara Hayley, Beverly Trask, John Allen, and Michaela Cannon.

Alyssa is an active member of the New Orleans dance community. She has performed with Ballet Hysell and D’Project since 2010, and as an independent artist around the city. Her choreography for D’Project has been performed in Southern Voices: Dance Out Loud, Whispers and Voices, The Death Monologues, and Let’s Dance: A Modern Dance Tribute to David Bowie. She teaches for the Loyola Preparatory Arts Dance Program, ballet and jazz at Loyola University, offers adult ballet and contemporary classes around the city, and recently became a certified yoga teacher through the Wild Lotus 200 hour yoga teacher training program.
