Kinetic Energy Alive has been busy with its first dance performance and has joined with Swing amd Sway Dancing.

Owner and director Kea Tesseyman is now working on a new system that will take dance training to the next level.

After training at Alvin Ailey Extension in New York City, Tesseyman has combined her experiences from New York and her history of training in Boston to format a new training system. Working with one of Alvin Ailey’s program directors, KEA is working on raising funds to take students to New York. Through private and group classes ranging in dance styles from modern, ballet and jazz, to African, hip hop and horton, to lectures, demonstrations, and viewing a live Ailey performance, the dancers will learn about training in the big city.

The days in the city when not at Alvin Ailey, students will learn health tips about cooking to self care, and how to tend to sore muscles and strains that may happen while dancing.

Classes at KEA include hip hop, jazz, lyrical, interpretive, all boys break dance and exercise. New session begins Monday, Jan. 3. For more information, contact Kea Tesseyman at 975-4450 or e-mail at for registration and information.
