    Lyssa Rumsey is going into her junior year as a Dance major at Texas State University and serves as the President of Transient Dance Collective, an improv dance group run by dance majors. She began her performance journey at the age of three at A Time To Dance studio in Lake Jackson, TX. As her time there came to a close, she started discovering musical theatre in summer workshops at Brazosport Center for the Arts and Sciences in Clute, TX. She found a love for musical theatre at the age of 12 when she was cast in The Women at Brazosport Center Stages. From there, she continued her career in dance at Footsteps School of Dance and in the Brazoswood Buccaneer Belles, her high school’s dance team. She also was a member of the Brazoswood High School Choir and was inducted into the Thespian National Honor Society in her sophomore year of high school. She joined the All-State Treble Choir in 2017, and she graduated later that spring. She’s partaken in many performances, but her most recent accomplishments include choreographing and acting in Shrek the Musical [Brazosport Center Stages, Clute, TX], organizing and performing in Transient Dance Collective’s Informance [Texas State University], and performing in the Dance Division’s Choreographer’s Showcase [Texas State University]. Although she sings and acts, dancing is her favorite pastime, and she is well-versed in tap, ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, and musical theatre dance. In her free time she also plays guitar and piano, sews, and watches movies with her fianc√©.
