Charissa Kroeger is a multifaceted dancer and choreographer whose credits span TV, film, music videos, dance companies, opera and commercials. She dabbles between commercial and concert dance- performing for notable brands and artists such as Dua Lipa, Netflix, Amazon, Ford Motors, Solange Knowles’ Saint Heron, The Colbert Show and The Ellen Show. Charissa is a Southern California native, who received her B.A. in dance from Loyola Marymount University and furthered her training at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance under Summer Lee Rhatigan and former Batsheva star Bobbi Jene Smith. She has been a part of numerous creative teams as an assistant choreographer, working alongside prolific artists in the field such as Ryan Heffington and Tony Testa. Internationally she has toured with the Grammy winning artist Lorde and in Daniel Ezralow’s company, Ezralow Dance. Most recently, Serena Williams selected Charissa to be a dance brand ambassador for Ms. Williams’ apparel line, “Serena: Be Seen, Be Heard.”
Currently, Charissa is involved in many creative projects, including dancing in Ryan Murphy's new film "The Prom," choreographing a newly released film "AVIVA" (which also features our very own Roz LeBlanc Loo), and assisting Ryan Heffington for Sia's film entitled "MUSIC," which is set to release later this year.
We are so proud of Charissa and our alumni!
