Alexia Pissarides to present at TEDxNicosia Women
'Time is a constant pulse. Rhythm is the pattern we create around it.' Alexia Pissarides' face lights up when she attempts to explain what dancing means to her. And that spark is contagious!
A dancer, visual artist and creative producer, Alexia's strong inclination towards dance and the creative arts led her to the prestigious Tring Park of the Performing Arts in England at the age of 14. There, she received her teaching certificate in Classical Ballet and Modern Dance, and thereafter founded and ran her own dance school in Cyprus. Following 10 creative years at Alexia’s School of Dance, she decided to shift her focus on her growing family, yet not away from her passion.
In 2011, Alexia started a new concept of workshops in cooperation with successful artists from the West End and other top UK performers. Workshops with renowned names such as Dax O’Callaghan (West end Performer, Choreographer), Layla Ellison (Leading dancer for Top Chart Artists), Lucas Mc Farnell (winner of 2015 Britain You Got Talent) and Ryan Jenkins (West end Performer, Choreographer, Founder of ID Dance) were met with incredible success, paving the way to offer remarkable opportunities to dancers in Cyprus.
Alexia has also acted as producer and event manager with prominent artists and musicians, including Soprano Aliki Chrysochou and Maestro Yiannis Hadjiloizou.
Alexia views art as a form of creative expression and, through her installation work, she embarks on a journey from discovering to caring, re-decorating and skillfully blending the old with the new.
Alexia has been a member of the Board of Directors of DanceCyprus and an active supporter of Young Volunteers Cyprus.
She is married to Omiros Pissarides and together they have three children.
