Francis Xavier Warde (Chicago)
This is Alex' second year at Extensions Dance Company. Alex did not start dancing until she was 10 years old. Prior to joining Extensions, Alex was a member of Intrigue Dance Company. Since joining Extensions, Alex has grown increasingly passionate about dance and absolutely loves it. Alex especially loves ballet, contemporary and tap. She also is very excited to be on pointe this year.
Alex enjoys all of the classes taught by the Company's incredible instructors, especially Lizzie who is a true inspiration to Alex. She also adores her fellow dancers who are wonderful friends and role models. Alex is especially excited about the 2016-17 season and the opportunity to work with such wonderful choreographers. Alex wants to give special thanks to Lizzie, Lauren, Miranda, Garth, Jared, and all of her instructors for putting their heart and soul into Extensions and the Company. Alex also wants to thank all of the dancers in the Company for being so supportive, loving and kind.
