Alex has a background in dance, theatre and performing arts. She always had a passion for movement and expression, so when Pole arrived in her life at 19 years old, there was an immediate sense of curiosity and belonging. She soon studied with various teachers as well as learning on her own through YouTube and online resources. It was a beautiful journey of self discovery and empowerment she now brings to every class and workshop she teaches. Alex was competitive at a professional level for 3 years and continues to train and find similar disciplines to explore in performance. She holds a certificate in Pole (PFIC), aerial hoop (PFIC), yoga (200hr), and personal training (NASM). Alex continues to learn and grow daily and believes that there is always more to discover both within herself, and from others in the industry. Vertika is a space for movement exploration, self empowerment and more!
