Alarica Hassett was born and raised in the Twin Cities. She began dancing at the age of five and was trained in the Cecchetti method where she passed their exams up through grade 5.
Alarica first performed with Continental Ballet for the 2004/2005 season and then returned again in 2015 after studying and performing other styles of dance. While her favorite classical ballet is Copellia, she has also enjoyed performing in Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderela, and The Nutcracker. Some of her favorite roles include a Wili from Giselle, Czardas and Mazurka from Copelia, and the Red Riding Hood variation from Sleeping Beauty.
