She participated in the Boston Ballet trainee program and attended summer programs at the School of American Ballet and Chautauqua, where she was an apprentice on full scholarship for three years and received the Artistic Director’s Award for Overall Excellence. In 2014, Alexandra attended the Royal Danish Ballet summer program in Copenhagen as an exchange student from Boston Ballet. While at Chautauqua, Alexandra danced in Marius Petipa’s Paquita, Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux’s Danse Brillante and Mazurka (soloist), and Mark Diamond’s Maestoso and Appalachian Suite. During her training at Boston Ballet School, she performed numerous student roles, including Clara in Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker. She also danced in George Balanchine’s Raymonda Variations and Jerome Robbins’ Fanfare as a pre-professional student in Boston Ballet’s Next Generation performance. Alexandra joined Pennsylvania Ballet as an apprentice for our 2016/2017 season and was then promoted to corps de ballet for 2017/2018. She has danced with the company in ballets that include Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella (Spring Fairy), George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® and Western Symphony, Christopher Wheeldon’s Rush, and the world premiere of Brian Sanders’ Chicken Bone Brain.
