Hello! I'm Alivia and I am so excited to be joining A Step Above Dance and Music Academy. I am originally from Iowa City, IA, but recently relocated to the Madison area last year. Previously, I was a competitive dancer for 15 years. I was a member of the National Dance Academy in Iowa and competed at different competitions throughout the Midwest. In 2015 I joined the local high school dance team in Iowa City. There, I placed 1st at state and 11th at the national competition for Jazz. 


Following my competitive dance career, I attended the University of Iowa where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education. I have always had a great love for teaching and educating, but while doing so I started to miss being in the studio and being in the dance environment surrounded by the creativity it allowed me to express growing up. This has brought me to A Step Above Dance and Music Academy in order to share my love and passion for the art of dance, and I could not be more excited!
