Alla Korot (born November 1, 1970) is an American actress and dancer.

Korot was born in Odessa, Ukrainian SSR to Elena and Alex Korot. Korot and her family immigrated to the United States in 1977, and she subsequently grew up in San Francisco.[1] Before acting, she performed for Ballet Celeste International with her family for six years. After touring, the family settled in California, where Korot won the title of California Miss T.E.E.N. in 1987.

In 1990, Korot moved to New York City and won the role which would become her best-known on television, that of Jenna Norris on the soap opera Another World. Korot departed the series in December 1993 and acted sporadically on episodic television back on the West Coast before returning to soaps as Allie Doyle on All My Children (1997–1998).

Most recently, Korot starred in six episodes of The District, and has guest-starred in 24, Nip/Tuck and CSI: NY. In 2007, she played Stacey Sloan on the SOAPnet series General Hospital: Night Shift. Korot continues to reside in her home state of California.

Korot is Jewish.[1] She is married to a Russian-born Israeli, and the two co-launched L'uvalla, an Internet-based skin care business.[1] The line can now be found at high end supermarkets.
