BFA Class of 2021
Alexandra Policaro was born and raised in Northern Virginia until moving to New York City, at the age of 16, to train at The Ailey School. She received a full scholarship to attend the institution’s Junior Division program while receiving her high school education at the Professional Performing Arts School. Under the Artistic Direction of Tiffany Barnes and Guillermo Asca, she performed works by Adrienne Hurd, Matthew Rushing, Earl Mosley, Pedro Ruiz, Martin Lofsnes, Christian von Howard and Winston Dynamite Brown. Alexandra is a 2017 National Young Arts Foundation winner in modern dance and was presented the Excellence in Dance award at the Professional Performing Arts School. Through an outreach program, known as Kaufman Connections, Alexandra has taught dance to elementary school students at the 32nd Street/USC Performing Arts Magnet School. Along with her passion to teach and inspire her goal is to perform, collaborate and create in a creation-based repertory company, specializing in a contemporary field. She seeks to extrapolate her dance knowledge through a historical and interpersonal lens to help guide her career as a dance artist and educator. As an active Gyrotonics trainee, Alexandra will apply her interests in health, fitness, wellness, nutrition and mindfulness to create an accessible practice of diversified clientele.
