Alexandra was born and raised in Minas Gerais, Brazil. She moved to Sydney, Australia in 2008 and her heart now has a special place for both these wonderful countries.

Dance, sports and health have always been a part of Alexandra’s life and are some of her greatest passions. Alexandra started training in classical ballet when she was 4 years old and has never stopped dancing since. She took classes in a wide range of styles and from 2001 onwards dancing became a profession for her. Alexandra is also a Capoeira artist and has trained in the Brazilian martial art form since the age of 9.

In 2007 Alexandra graduated with a Bachelor of Physical Education and Sports Science and turned her passion into a career by teaching, motivating and inspiring others. Alexandra strongly believes in the many health and wellness benefits of dance, such as the release of the happiness hormone, mental and physical relaxation and awareness of body movement and limitation. She incorporates these beliefs and her experience and skills into her professional and personal life.

Alexandra currently works in a physiotherapy hospital and is also a personal trainer, fitness model, coach and athlete. Amongst her busy schedule, she has been a performing artist with Rhythm Brazil for the past four years. Alexandra’s bubbly personality, joy and passion for dance shines through in all her performances.
