LaTissa ChaNellé found her passion for dancing at a young age, shortly after breaking a chair while mimicking Janet Jackson’s “Pleasure Principle” music video. She sought opportunities to move and create dance, and this expanded into cheerleading where she choreographed competition routines that earned her team national awards. Her formal dance training began as an undergraduate at UNC-Chapel Hill when she joined Blank Canvas Dance Company. After graduation, LaTissa began teaching dance workshops at community events and performing with the Carolina Bombshells, the Carolina Bengals and the Carolina Jaguars.
LaTissa continued to teach beginner to advanced hip-hop classes as well as Cize Live and cardio fitness classes around the Triangle. She uses her story to encourage the next generation of dancers to explore their potential, stay encouraged, and live their dreams.
