Alyssa Minogue started her dance journey at the age of 3 in Northwest Indiana as a tiny dancer, later realizing her real passion was teaching and choreographing. By the age of 15 she was co-coaching Clifford Pierce Middle School dance team and choreographing for local schools in Indiana. While in high school she spent a year on the Merrillville High School Varsity Dance Team, before turning to online schooling to focus on her dance training and career in the dance industry. 

During that time she was blessed to train under some of the industry's elite leaders while also building and designing a well rounded dance program, tailored for the Hobart, Indiana YMCA. She spent 3 successful years as the artistic director of that program. She then opened her own studio, Creative Edge Dance Academy, at the age of 19. There she took on all roles: owner, head teacher, artistic director and director of her pre-professional dance company, CEDA Co. After taking a year hiatus to travel, teach, and study she is excited to be back as co-owner of Creative Edge Academy. Creative Edge Academy offers a variety of classes for recreational and pre-professional dancers and musicians.
