      Annalisia discovered her passion for dance at the age of 8 where she attended DancExchange in North Miami, Fl.  Under the direction of Yayi Faretta and Linda Rogers-Albritton, Annalisia began choreographing and teaching her very own dance classes at the age of 15 instilling her passion for education.  Eventually, she would be accepted to and graduate with Honors from the prestigious New World School of the Arts in Miami.  By the age of 18 Annalisia received full scholarships to the most elite dance schools in New York City such as Joffrey School of Ballet, Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Broadway Dance Center and Henry Le Tang School of Tap.

      After earning her Bachelors of Arts Degree from Florida International University in Elementary Education with a Minor in Dance Education, Annalisia became a Miami Heat Dancer for a brief time before making her big move to Los Angles where she became a successful dancer to stars.  She has appeared in numerous music videos and performed on the VMA’s, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, the ESPY Awards for Lady Gaga, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jason Derulo, Nelly, Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan and Cee Lo Green to name a few.  She is a proud member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) with movie roles in Fat Albert and Idlewild.  Annalisia has also toured the world with Motley Crue, Chris Brown, Omarion, Eve, Nelly, ‘Nsync and Jessica Simpson.  After over a decade long career, her final farewell performance was in 2013 where she appeared on DWTS Macy’s Stars of Dance Tribute to Dick Clark.

      Following this whirlwind of excitement, Annalisia decided to move back home to Miami to share her knowledge and experience of the professional world of dance to young Miami dancers.  Now the Owner and Director of M.I.A. Dance Factory in North Miami Beach, Annalisia is continuing her passion to teach.  As a teacher and choreographer, her students have been honored with many titles, high scores and special awards in numerous regional competitions.  Amongst her honors and achievements, none are as great as seeing her influence on young minds and bodies, creating hard working, motivated and passionate dancers.
