Alyssa Simma has participated in dance, gymnastics, and musical theatre since the age of 5. Growing up she competed in styles of classically trained dance, as well as Pom Style, and Cheer/Dance Team Style Dance through the Jacksonville All-Stars; which helped her to realize her love of the combination in the two styles.
Upon entering middle, and throughout high school, she furthered her cheer and dance interests by participating in Cheerleading at the Varsity level, acting and assisting dance choreography in her High School’s Musicals, and also played JV and Varsity Volleyball.
Graduating from Jacksonville High School in 2013, she continued on to attend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Throughout her Freshman to Junior year at UNCC, Alyssa was a member of the UNC Charlotte 49er’s Gold Dusters Dance team; and has now, in her final year, gone on to achieve her dream of being an NFL Cheerleader for the Carolina Panthers!
Entering into her Senior year at UNC Charlotte, Alyssa is also entering into her first Rookie season as an NFL Cheerleader! Looking forward to an eventful year, she is planning to graduate in May of 2017, with a B.A. in Middle Grades Education. With the hopes to continue being apart of the Carolina Panthers Organization for as long as possible, she aspires to continue her NFL Cheerleading career upon graduation, begin her career as a teacher, and even hopes to one day become a cheer and dance coach herself!
