"Not Everyone can be famous. But everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service" - Martin Luther King 
My name is Alyssa Junious and I am a San Diego based arts and wellness advocate. As a social conscious artist, I am dedicated to creating work that inspires change and initiates conversation. I am the founder of Continuum Arts & Pilates and I teach, perform and choreograph throughout Southern California. I am fascinated with the moving body and train dancers, athletes and fitness enthusiast at my private studio in Oceanside, California. As co-founder of Soultry Sisters, an arts and wellness collective, I empower women to lead creative and confident lives.

"Ase / Ibalik is an afro-futuristic dance film that explores the intersection of spirituality, activism and taps into the spiritual power of dance." Alyssa (Ajay) Junious

 

Director Statement

 I believe that movement can be a catalyst for collective healing and social change. My most recent films are centered around spirituality, social justice and the intersectionality of my identity as a Black and Filipina Woman. There is power in creating your own narrative and through the process of storytelling I have learned that sharing our perspectives and human experience can create empathy and compassion. May my work be an offering of inspiration and empower you to tell your story.

  "A powerful un-self-conscious and respectful declarative revolutionary piece." LA Dance Chronicle

Donate & Support!

I am an independent artist and most of my work isn't fully funded. I am passionate about creating work in my community. Oceanside is my hometown and I want to hold space for BIPOC folks to feel seen, supported and celebrated. Why? Because representation matters and it's important to have BIPOC leaders in arts and culture community organizations.  Oceanside is a diverse and multi-cultural city and I want to create programs, performances, and events that reflect the arts and culture of my community. Your donation and support will help me reach that goal. You can choose to donate a one time or monthly pledge.
