Alexis Roberts started dancing at Dance Craze at the age of 2 in Washington, Missouri. Her love for the art grew as she began competing at the age of 5. All thanks to her mother, Sherri Roberts, she began to train more seriously in styles, such as Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Lyrical and Hip Hop dance. Under her father’s direction, she also began to train competitively in all-star cheerleading and tumbling. She had the opportunity to work closely with St. Louis based teachers and choreographers, such as Redd Williams and Kelly Daughtery. During high school, Roberts assisted Celebration Dance Talent Convention and won Dancer of the Year at Hollywood Vibe, enabling her to assist the convention the following year. Roberts graduated high school in 2016 with six state dance and cheer championships.
She then moved to Orange, California to attend Chapman University as a Dance major. She has worked closely with professors and choreographers, like Alicia Guy, Will Johnston, and Wilson Mendieta. She joined the Chapman University Dance Team and Team Shaka and has been a member for all four years. She served as Chapman University Dance Team’s Co-President and led the team to their 12th consecutive title. Roberts also served as Team Shaka’s President and helped create a relationship between the team and STL artist, Roisee. During her time at Chapman, she has choreographed for Technology for Live Performance, Concert InTime, Chapman Dance Alliance, and USA Spirit Nationals. Roberts had the opportunity to dance in and choreograph a short film called “Come On Eileen” produced by Dodge College.
She was awarded the Frannie Kallis award in recognition of outstanding contribution to the dance department by a junior. She was awarded Outstanding Choreography award in recognition of her Concert InTime piece, “te·nac·i·ty”. Roberts will graduate in May of 2020 at Chapman University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance. She is excited to use the knowledge and experience she has gained to pursue a career in Los Angeles, California.
