Alexis has been moving her body to music for as long as she can remember. Born and raised in Delaware, Alexis started ballet training at age 2, continuing to study dance, anatomy, and choreography all the way through high school and college. Her interest in health and wellness brought her to Boston University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. She has practiced dentistry in New Hampshire and Maine for the past 10 years with her husband, Brendan, during which time Alexis re-ignited her love of movement by participating in group fitness. In 2019, Alexis began teaching classes such as barre, cardio barre, core, and glutes.
In January 2021, Alexis and her family moved to Summerville for warmer weather and a new chapter of life centered on family. Three days after arriving in South Carolina, Alexis’s husband encouraged her to take a class at Barre Nation, knowing how much she missed her fitness community up north and how she missed teaching others. She found a home immediately. Alexis finds joy in sharing movement to music with others, in hopes of elevating others to feel confidence, joy, and gratitude in moving their bodies and in nurturing a fruitful mind-body connection.
