Alexis loves to dance. It is one of her greatest passions, as is teaching. She believes dancing is a skilled art for expression and connection, one that everyone deserves to have the pleasure of experiencing. She teaches in a patient, yet firm style rippled with comedic relief. Often called a "drill-sergeant," Alexis will ensure you learn "the right way" the first time. She believes clean habits and confident dancers are created early. Sharing and helping others positively affect their lives through dance is one of her greatest joys.
