(Find the film at ResearchIngContactImprovisation.com).
Alyssa is one of the founding teachers of Touch and Play. 
As well as dancing, Alyssa works as a life coach (AlyssaLynes.com) trained at the Academy of Coaching Excellence.
In the last year Alyssa completed a North American tour of a CI workshop called "Dancing Generosity" and published an article in Contact Quarterly, online, titled: "Awareness, Engagement & Resilience". Alyssa assists Zahava Gris in their leadership program for facilitators who use movement to support people with intimacy and sexual empowerment.
