Alisa took over as Artistic Director of Gay Wightman School of Ballet after her mother Gay retired in 1991. With experience in marketing and business management as well as considerable expertise in ballet training and dance administration, Alisa maintained the school’s reputation for excellence while expanding the dance training on offer.
A graduate of the Australian Ballet School’s Teacher Training Program and Director of the Melbourne Ballet Company, Alisa is a respected and sought after member of the Australian dance community.
Despite leading a highly professional dance school, Alisa endeavours to get to know each student. She is dedicated to sharing her passion for dance with as many young dancers as possible.
In 2020, Alisa was thrilled to take on the position as a Mentor for DSOA where she works with International Studio Owner CEOs from all over the world.
