Event Manager

Why did you join the ATDF committee?

Being on the committee for the Australian Tap Dance Festival allows my passion for the tap dance industry and events world to collide. Whilst also being surrounded by a dynamic and supportive team, you could say it really is the dream job.

Have you ever fallen on stage at the ATDF gala show?

Yes! Falling all the way to the floor while centre front during the end of a group routine. I made a very quick recovery but had a concerned Michelle Dorrance (who was the international headliner that year) come backstage to the dressing room to check I was ok and not injured.

Favorite food

I do really love a good burger with fries and a coke.

Alysha's story

Alysha has been around events for a lot of her life, first as a performer and now working on the event management side.

She started dance at the age of five at Barbara Lynch Dance Studio, trained at the Australian Ballet School and completed two years of full time training with Robert Sturrock. This then allowed her to be part of various corporate events over the years, appear in her first professional show ‘42nd Street’ for The Production Company, be involved in the early stages of Collaboration the Project and make her television debut dancing at Rod Laver Arena for the AFL Grand Final Footy Show in the players revue.

Alysha has extended her tapping in Melbourne being part of groups such as One Big Blur and currently Pickled Beats, while also learning from some talented artists through Broadway Dance Centre & Steps on Broadway in New York. Participating in the Australian Tap Dance Festival has also allowed her to be exposed to some incredible headlining international tap artists.

Alysha has previous experience working across a wide variety of events and therefore being immersed in so many different areas has allowed her to execute and build a range of skills along the way as well as the ability to learn, grow and be challenged.
