Alexa Racioppi | CEO Instructor
Alexa is a New York City based performer and creator. Born in SanFrancisco, CA, and raised in Wyckoff, NJ; she is a true lover of both coasts. Her dance career began when she was very young, having the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall at the age of 10, and again at 12. She then went on to train with The American Ballet Theatre and Manhattan Youth Ballet in hopes of achieving her dream of becoming a professional ballerina. Along the way, broadway stole her heart!
Alexa has been working professionally in the broadway community since graduating from Montclair State University (BFA Dance / BFA Musical Theatre, Go Red Hawks!), and has had the opportunity to work closely with industry legends such as Mark Hoebee and Alex Sanchez (Papermill Playhouse) and Kim Craven and Andy Blankenbuehler (CATS Broadway Revival Tour) to name a few!
Alexa has been teaching musical theatre dance and ballet as well as choreographing shows in New Jersey for 10 years! Skilled in working with both students who consider themselves "singer/ actors", who want to feel more comfortable in dance calls, to students who considers themselves "Dancers", who want to bring the art of story telling to their already advanced movement.
Alexa is a proud Puerto Rican / Italian American (Boricua para simpre!). She is also an avid space enthusiast, and she would probably study astrophysics if she were to return to school for a third degree!
