Alex was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with an innate passion for movement. Whether running loose in the neighborhood, playing sports, or dancing, the functional mechanics and expression of the body always captured her imagination. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Arizona and is working as a freelance dance artist and Pilates instructor based out of New York City. Pilates was first introduced to her at the age of 11 when a ballet master recommended it as a form of cross training to stabilize and strengthen her body from injury, and it quickly became the most successful form of injury prevention and rehabilitation for her rigorous dance schedule. Alex is currently completing her comprehensive certification through Ellie Herman. Her passion for instructing lies in sharing the knowledge of the body she has accumulated in a fun and supportive environment. Her goal is to have everyone leave her class feeling better than when they entered and with a deeper knowledge of their own facility.
