Our season lasts from August to about mid-July. Yeah, I don’t really stop dancing,” Alexa shared her busy schedule.

Alexa travels to dance competitions from Columbus to Cleveland, and even a couple in Michigan. She is currently preparing for her big showcase this Saturday which will be held at Bowling Green High School.

Alexa received the honor of Most Valuable Dancer in her studio’s recital last year. She also took third place for her junior-year solo in another competition.
