Get to Know Alisa




How many years have you spent on the team?
My name is Alisa and I've been a Timberwolves Dancer for two years now.

Where are you from?
I am from Andover, Minnesota, just about 30 minutes north of the city.

What's your favorite food?
My favorite food is pizza.

What's your favorite movie?
I like funny movies, so I would have to say Tommy Boy.

Are you in school? What's your major?
I go to the University of Minnesota and I'm majoring in Communications.

What do you do in your free time?
I like to hang out with my friends. I do take dance classes, so I'm still dancing. I like to spend time with my family.

What's your favorite part of being a dancer?
My favorite part about being a Timberwolves Dancer is being able to do what I love with the people that I love.

Do you have a pregame ritual?
I have to practice the dance, religiously, until we go out on the court, otherwise I get nervous that I'll forget a part.

What are your goals as a dancer?
I just wanted to improve my dancing and my performance, because I think I grew so much last year and I can only go up from that, especially performance-wise.
