San Jose native Allyson Del Rosario got her start in dance after finding inspiration in her older sister at the age of 5. As she was old enough to enroll in classes she quickly jumped into her sisters shoes and began making a name for herself in the world of dance. The first studio she ever trained at was Sheri’s Born to Dance studio in San Jose where she got her first taste of competitive dance. Eventually the owner of the studio passed down the keys to one of her students being Tawnya Kuzia who renamed the studio Norcal Dance Arts and is the current owner. Through Norcal Dance Arts (NCDA) Ally was able to train day and night joining the Hip Hop Dance collective and later dipping her feet into community dancing by training with Hungry Bumz which was led by Randy Van Le and Kyle Limin.
During the time she was on Hungry Bumz, Ally was also attending school at San Jose State University where she was studying Dance. She eventually got her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance with an emphasis in Jazz. Ally finds inspiration in her many peers around her, who motivate her to be a better her. Her style stems from a very sassy and feminine feel which allows her to perform and teach in an empowered womanly way. Ally has also been a back up dancer for Johnny Maxwell and the Christmas Special for The Filipino Channel (TFC).
Today Ally continues on dancing, teaching at the studio that gave her a home and started her dance career. You can catch Ally teaching her heels class every Tuesdays from 7:30-8pm. She also teaches in styles such as contemporary, lyrical, and hip hop ranging from ages 4-18. Aside from just teaching she is also part of the dance company Syndicate which spawned from her old team Hungry Bumz. Dance has helped Ally give her 100% in all she does and has given her the confidence to be her true self.
