About Me

Alessandra Ruiz is a Cuban-American actress who recently completed The Atlantic Acting School's Summer Intensive Program last August. She currently has a B.A. in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Physical Theatre from California State University, Fullerton. Alessandra has also trained with Frantic Assembly for devised and physical theatre work. She is currently in INTAR Theatre's UNIT 52 program. She grew up in Los Angeles, California, but relocated to the East Coast to pursue theatre in NYC.

Alessandra recently performed in Antonia Cruz-Kent's Columbia MFA Thesis play "IVERA" as the titular role of Ivera. She is currently in rehearsals for the world premiere of Bradly Valenzuela's play "Pieces of People: A Two-Sided Eulogy" as Lucy. The play will be a part of the 2024 New York Theatre Festival at the Hudson Guild Theatre.

 

Alessandra's passion for theatre comes from the need for representation in the arts. As she fell in love with performing as a child, she didn't see much of herself or her people reflected in media. As a Latine actress, she wants to give a voice to her community.  Alessandra believes theatre is a powerful art form that can truly help make a change. She loves the stage, but also has passions and works in film/tv, voiceover, and educational theatre for kids. She works with Family Life Theatre, a company that focuses on using theatre to teach S.E.L. (social emotional learning) for students in all boroughs of NYC.
