Cessie Alhambra, started dancing at 5 years old with Ballet and Tap. Went to East Bay center for the performing arts for 3 summers. Trained in ballet, jazz, Traditional Mexican and African dancing music and theater. In high school trained a lot in Jazz and Contemporary. Later, joined Chapkis Dance trained under Greg Chapkis and Melvin Timtim for 4 years. Learned a lot of the modern hip hop techniques such as locking, housing and isolating. I’ve Found that Jazz/Contemporary was more of my style! We are so excited to bring her expertise, creativity, and passion for kids to MDA.
