I'm sure this face is already familiar to you if you've ever stepped foot inside of Dance Austin Studio. Chances are this is the main beautiful & friendly face that will greet you! Meet Alexis!

1. When did you start dancing? 

I’ve been dancing since a very young age. My mom says I would stand in front of the T.V. and mimic what I saw. I’m self taught and I’ve been dancing for as long as I can remember. I didn’t really start any formal training until I was in college. 


2. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin? 

Austin is full of Live Music, and it’s one of the many things that attracted me to this city. I try to go to a concert at least once a month as well as the many music festivals Austin hosts annually. 

3. Hometown? 

Hidalgo, Texas is where I was raised. A very small border town at the very tip of texas. The Rio Grande Valley is what some of you might know it by. Not much to do out there, but drive out 45 minutes to go to the beach (South Padre Island).
