Hailing from California, Allysa began taking jazz dance classes when she was only two years old. Since then, she has trained in various styles, but says that her favorite is hip-hop and jazz, which she excels in. An aspiring Broadway actress, she had voice training when she was in elementary school and would like to further enhance her voice. Allysa was exposed to auditions while she frequently accompanied friends, and soon realized the opportunities she had to make it in the entertainment industry. Upon graduating high school, she decided to delay her college education and instead headed to New York for a six-month stay. She later moved to Los Angeles and has been there for 18 months already. Right now, Allysa is focused on her career as a performer, but still values education and is considering going back to school. Nonetheless, her mother is very supportive of her decisions and her aspirations of becoming a professional performer.
A very determined person, Allysa is also caring and nurturing by nature. She values her talent and always tries her best to share her talents. With no regrets, she is proudly living independently and admits that her hard work and determination has paved the way for her to become who she is today.
A woman of expression, Allysa is one of 14 contenders in ABC's Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, a reality competition featuring two teams going up against each other in a war on the dance floor. Allysa competes on Team Carrie Ann.
