eastpointelogo260Alyse Keyser is the founder and director at East Pointe Dance, LLC. For as long as Ms. Keyser could remember she has envisioned herself directing a prosperous dance school where children and adults could form a love of the art with proper dance education just as she did at a young age. When a fantastic opportunity presented itself to Alyse to open a school for dancers, Alyse was able to make her dream become a reality.

Ms. Keyser trained at American Ballet Theatre, Steps on Broadway, Joffrey Ballet School, Alvin Ailey School of Dance, and Civic Dance Center. She was awarded many dance scholarships from prestigious programs.

She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from SUNY Purchase in psychology. During her time in college and after, she modeled for Dance Spirit Magazine and Dance Magazine. When Ms. Keyser was not busy teaching, modeling, and going to school, she performed all over Westchester County and NYC as a freelance ballet dancer.

In 2010, Alyse graduated summa cum laude from New York University with a Master of Arts degree in Teaching Dance in Higher Education and the Professions, American Ballet Theatre Ballet Pedagogy.

While at NYU and ABT she had the opportunity to teach and assist dance classes, choreograph at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at ABT and continue to perform.

Alyse has taught classes across the country including Broadway Dance Center, directed dance programs in Westchester County, and has been a panelist for internationally known educational dance workshops. She served as an assistant to Raymond Lukens, ABT/NYU Artistic Associate and ABT JKO faculty member and was the rehearsal assistant for Rosanna Seravalli at an ABT Summer Intensive program. She also has worked in the ABT Education Department.

Ms. Keyser also teaches at the distinguished independent school, Greenwich Country Day in Greenwich, CT. as the Ballet Mistress.
