Kathryn​ Shorey Bizzozero Teacher

Kathryn​ Shorey Bizzozero began her dance training at a young age. She enrolled in Boston Ballet as soon as it opened a studio on the South Shore. During her time at the Boston Ballet School, she performed many different roles in the Nutcracker and other BB productions. Kathryn was also part of end-of-year Ballets along with her classmates. Before graduating from High School and moving on to college, Ms. Bizzozero was in Ms. Madden's Highest class level. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Ms. Bizzozero attended Regis College of Nursing. She was quickly noticed and recruited by Premier Research, Inc. - a medical and pharmacological research firm. She currently works full-time in diabetics research with Novo Nordisk.

Ms. Bizzozero has been teaching Ballet at CBA on and off since its inception. She is much beloved by her students, as well as their parents.

Alyssa Biagini

Alyssa Biagini Teacher

Alyssa Biagini began her Ballet training very early and has danced almost every role in Nutcracker at CBA. She has also danced the soloist roles in many classics and newly-choreographed Ballets. She could have gone on to be a professional dancer but chose to go to college instead. Alyssa graduated from High School with high honors and went on to Hobart and William Smith College, and she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Studies.

Alyssa has been part of the teaching staff at the CBA Summer Dance Program for many years. When available, she has substitute-taught every level in the school. Alyssa is a rare individual who can walk in and run a rehearsal - even without knowing the choreography. She is in high demand, and I am pleased to announce that she will join CBA as regular staff and take the Monday, 4:30 classes.
