    About me

    Larissa's early training rooted from jazz and theatre dance, but continued to branch out into contemporary and modern dance when she fell in love with these styles training at Ev & Bow, Sydney (2013). To pursue this passion and further herself as a dancer, she accepted her invitation to train at the school of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (2014-2017) in New York.

    In the three years she spent there, she performed a range of modern and neo-classical dance repertory, a highlight being the opportunity to perform alongside the Alvin Ailey company in their ballet "Memoria" during their New York City Centre season. During this time, Larissa also took part in the creation of numerous original works by various American / European contemporary choreographers and attended many broadway jazz / Fosse workshops and festivals around the city.

    For full details in her credits, please refer to her CV.

    In the summer of 2017, Larissa explored the horizons of dance in Europe as she travelled and took part in workshops and intensives broadening her knowledge and skills in contemporary dance. After falling in love with the cities and the love and appreciation for the arts here, she made the decision to move to London early 2018, which is where she is now based.

    Larissa has an equal passion for both contemporary and jazz / theatre dance, reflected in her credits. In the coming years, Larissa hopes to dance on many different theatres around the world and be able to spread the message of dance and the joy of movement. She would love to dance on Broadway or the West End, as well as engage in the creation of new works and have the honour to bring different choreographers' visions to life for her love of contemporary dance.
