Alicia Hazen

Dance Instructor

Alicia was born and raised right here in Albany, NY. Her love for dancing started as far back as she can remember. She has danced a total of 30 years with a concentration in Ballet, Tap, and Jazz in the first 17 years. She was a student teacher for a local dance school when in her last two years of high school. She loved dancing with the Berkshire Ballet in the Nutcracker for 8 consecutive years. Upon graduation of high school, She was invited to dance and train with the NYC Rockettes, although fate would have it that she did not move to NYC to accept the invitation. She continued Ballet training through the Albany Berkshire Ballet during her active adult life as a pediatric nurse and mom of four. The past two years she has had the privilege to train with David Otto, a noted Broadway Choreographer. She has acquired multiple fitness certifications including Turbo Kick & Barre Flow. Alicia has such a love for dance, music and our little ones. Teaching brings her inexplicable joy. The self confidence, self expression, and fun that dance and music bring to students and teachers is so fulfilling for her. She is looking forward to teaching another season at KPA.
