"You are capable, and you are welcome here."
Infinity Dance started in 2007 as a competitive all-star dance team, literally practicing in a church basement. With their hard work and dedication to providing an opportunity to competitive dance, they grew to have a brick and mortar studio in Mukwonago in 2013. In 2019, they built their brand new facility in East Troy.
Carissa mentions Infinity Dance offers dance classes that broaden the spectrum to create the complete, well-rounded dancer – ballet, jazz, hip hop, tumbling and more for every level.
Carissa Chanos started working with Infinity Dance when it first opened nearly 10 years ago. At the time, Carissa was 14 years old and serving as an assistant coach. Carissa has since put her education and firsthand experience to work as the owner, artistic director and head coordinator of Infinity Dance. Carissa has over 15 years of dance experience including studio dance studies in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, modern, interpretive and pointe.
In addition to being a competitive company dancer for several years, she was also a four-year member and senior captain of a highly competitive high school varsity dance team. She has a background in Somatics Practice, which correlates anatomical studies and injury prevention, and said she cares as much about training young dancers as she does about educating responsible and dynamic leaders.
In 2015, Carissa was awarded the highly regarded DX National Coach of the Year award. Carissa returned home to her alma mater in 2018 to coach her high school dance team where she led them to a second place state finish and a national championship title.
