About Us

It all begins with an idea.

In today’s world, everything can be done electronically – including artistic movement. Our purpose here is strictly focused on performing arts, conditioning, strengthening practices & health and wellness. The creation of ‘Improve Your Dance’ came to fruition from two likeminded individuals rooted in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Daryan Sullivan and Alyssa Parham have a passion for helping artists express your talent & improve them from the comfort of your own home. The options you can have with online classes are endless!

COO Daryan Sullivan

A dreamer, a designer, and a business man. COO, Daryan Sullivan, has all of the ideas for the future of the performing arts. Daryan grew up in south Florida & his inspiration to pursue funk style dance stemmed from watching street dance films. After taking lessons from foundational pioneers, he eventually found himself to performing in Off Broadway Shows. Within the last couple of years he decided to take his dance career to the heart of Asheville, North Carolina to work for a small private group, where he also met his business partner, Alyssa Parham. Together they have cultivated their ideas & created a platform where everyone can have easier access to investing into their talents.  “I think learning your craft for many years and mastering a style is key. Learning online just makes developing your craft even easier and more convenient.” Daryan’s innovative ideas are making moves, and he hopes you are too!

CEO Alyssa Parham

Born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina, Alyssa Parham has been in the dance world since she could walk. Her dreams and passions always led her to the studio or the stage. At the age of twenty-two, Alyssa plans to expand her performing and teaching skills locally and abroad, so what better way than to do so online? She states, “since most things are done by internet these days then why not make the dance community a bigger part of it?” As CEO of ‘Improve Your Dance’, Alyssa hopes to make others dreams come true as well.
