My name is Alyssa Anani
I'm an actor, singer, dancer, and model with an athletic and musical background based out of NYC.
Passionate about life and the many perspectives that complete our shared experience, I find joy in storytelling- sharing seemingly silly or serious moments. You could describe me as a goofball who loves deeper conversations.
One layer deeper, I have witnessed what life can look like when most of what you unknowingly take for granted is unexpectedly stripped from your grasp. And I have been privileged with a returned sense of speech, communication, and physical ability that has directed my passion for learning, listening and storytelling.
Currently, one joy is sharing laughter and magic with audiences across the US and Canada in the National Tour of Disney's ALADDIN!
Offstage, I love writing and photography.
One of my most impacting projects, as director and performer, was an original production titled N.E.W. (Night of Elucidating Words) - a collection of real, forthright stories with an uplifting conclusion. Told from various perspectives through spoken word, song, and poetry, storytellers from all walks of life bravely share how their largest obstacles and tests have become their testimonies.
As the creator of Believe & Dream Photography, I experienced my gallery debut in 2011. Since then some of my moments captured have been shared in digital photography conferences across the US, Broadway playbills, album art for musicians and marketing campaigns for businesses!
