"Hello everybody, my name is Kaylissa! I am a 24 year old dancer from from Elk Grove, CA. Growing up I was super athletic. I trained in martial arts, ran track, and played basketball from the 5th - 12th grade. It wasn't until around age 21 that I began to venture into dance. Since then, I've trained in multiple styles including jazz, modern, and hip-hop. My style is all about feeling and moving how the music guides you. I embody wavy, water like movement and enjoy experimenting and fusing styles, especially modern/contemporary with hip-hip."
