BIOGRAPHY

Alexandra Clancy is a performer, choreographer, and teacher based in Vancouver with a love of dance and a passion for tap. Growing up, she trained at Danzmode and the Vancouver Tap Dance Society’s youth company – Tap Co, developing her skills in all genres of dance. She was an apprentice/understudy for the prestigious Tapestry Dance Company’s 25th season performing and touring across North America.

 

She has attended and performed at multiple tap festivals such as DC, LA, NY, Chicago, and Vancouver. Alexandra was privileged to train extensively, learning from tap masters such as Dianne Walker, Jason Samuels Smith, Derick Grant, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Chloe Arnold and many more. Alexandra is a proud alumna of the first tap program held at the iconic Jacob’s Pillow, and auditioned and returned a second time for another intensive two weeks. 

 

Alexandra had a role in ‘The Cholly Project’ directed by Travis Knights, and was grateful to dance in Lisa La Touche’s tap dance show titled ‘Hold On’. She was given the opportunity to perform in a Tri-Tone Productions show, founded by Tasha Lawson, as both a solo artist and in an ensemble working closely with musicians. She performed at the Kennedy Centre in DC as part of the inaugural first full-length tap show. She is thankful to have danced in many of Danny Nielsen’s shows, most recently at the Scotia Dance Centre in the Discover Dance Series.

 

Alexandra has a unique voice blending both tap and contemporary dance and looks forward to continuing to share her adoration of dance while teaching and performing both locally and internationally.
