Born with a love for dancing, Larissa started ballet at age 4 and has since participated in every  Musical, Concert and competition she possibly could. In Primary school, she started Hip Hop classes in the SADTA syllabus and later transitioned to AIDT training, adding Tap and Contemporary styles to her repertoire and still actively enjoys these 4 dance disciplines. In 2017, she completed her AIDT Hip Hop and Associate exams, as well as the necessary AIDT Tap exams to commence with her Associate Training in this discipline.  In her own capacity, Larissa started teaching pre-school ballet in 2013.

Thereafter she taught her own ‘Love for Dance classes’ (combining ballet, contemporary and musical theatre disciplines ) for the next 3 years, for children, students and adults. In 2015, she choreographed Maragon Olympus’ concert and also started a Children’s Dance Ministry team at Doxa Deo Brooklyn. She currently teaches ROHD’s Hopeful Hopper (Pre-School) Ballet-, Love for Dance-, Hip Hop- and Tap classes for children and adults. She is also still part of their Pure Hope Outreach, teaching ballet and Hip Hop. Having also completed her Pastoral Counselling and Psychology Degree in 2017, she hopes to combine counselling and dance, as practical form of therapy in the near future.
