In 2002, she joined Silverleaf Dance Company and trained with them for 3 and a half years. In her matric year (2005), Lisa auditioned at Jazzart Dance Theatre (September 2005) and was accepted into their “Young Adult Training and Job Creation Programme”, which starts with a new set of trainees every 3 years.
