Alexandria’s teaching experience includes all levels of ballet technique, pointe technique, creative movement, modern, tap, jazz, contemporary, and improvisation. She loves instilling passion and self-worth in her dancers and helping them realize their potential as humans through the study of dance. Alexandria lives and breathes dance each day through her students and her own movement exploration opportunities. She loves the beauty of nature, playing the cello, and furthering her study of anatomy and kinesiology!
