Alyssa Jurchuk, Dance Mentor

Dance has been Alyssa’s passion and focus since she was two years old. She is trained in jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop and competed in these styles with On Stage Dance Studio for 10+ years. She has won numerous awards and scholarships for dance and drama.

Alyssa has grown up at On Stage Dance Studio and is proud to call it her second home. At On Stage, she learned the importance of family, teamwork and commitment. She has always aspired to be a teacher and thanks to On Stage her dream has come true. Alyssa began assisting in classes, summer camps and birthday parties at the age of ten and she became one of the first Mentors at fifteen. In the mentorship program, Alyssa gained the experience and the skills necessary to prepare her for teaching dance. She is thrilled to share her love for dance with others and is excited to see this love grow in her students.
