My name is Aliyah. I was born and raised here in beautiful, sunny San Diego, California. I am a dancer (hence the domain), instructor and choreographer amongst other things. I am the Co. Artistic Director of The Dance Conservatory (formerly Dance Express) in El Cajon, CA. I also dance for LaDiego Dance Theater.

During the day I am a Project Manager at Einstein Industries, Inc., a San Diego based internet marketing firm who focuses on developing internet strategies in the Dental, Medical and Law industries. The company has been around since 1994. I’ve been with Einstein since 2004 and have worked my way up in the company to where I am now. Need less to say, I really love what I do and not to mention the people I work with are pretty cool.

My parents are Jameelah and Ali Hassan. I have one sister, Rhonda and two little brothers Jameel and Jamal.

Nephews: Michael, Mason, Marquis and AJ

Nieces (my babies): Meelah and Kerryn

If you have ever been around me and my family, you know that we are real close and pretty goofy and wild. We are also known as the Hassan Clan, cause we always role deep. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t talk to one of them. My sister, mom and I are probably the closest of all.

I am truly blessed! I thank God every chance I can for such a beautiful and uber supportive family. ♥
