Hip Hop Grooves
Lexi’s passion for Hip-Hop began when she took her first Popping class at 7 years old. While she was heavily involved in soccer throughout childhood, she stopped playing at age 15 to focus on dance, choreographing for her dance team, attending master workshops, and teaching part-time youth and adult classes. She attended the University of Colorado Boulder where she studied Psychology and Dance. She trained in Contemporary, African Dance, Hip-Hop, and House, and became heavily involved with the university’s street dance crew, VeRVE Collisionz. As captain of VeRVE, she helped organize the largest street dance competition in Colorado, acted as the creative director and choreographer for multiple shows and performances, and kept up the team morale. After graduating in 2018, she moved to the Bay Area and joined Str8jacket Dance Company, now serving as the Outreach Coordinator. She is grateful for all of the training and performance opportunities, and looks forward to continuing her professional career in dance. Her goal as a teacher is to educate her students about Hip-Hop history and culture and create an inclusive and positive environment for her students to grow as dancers.
