About

 

Alexandra is both a Visual and Oriental Dance Artist based in Miami, Florida.

Alexandra's art is a visual journey capturing the passion of her or her patron’s story and self. Her themes range from the mindful art of tea to how dance enhances self-confidence to be who you truly are. Her work also explores emotion and movement, and is known to be charged with sensuality, grace and fluidity. She aims for conversation, honesty and mindfulness.

As a Visual Artist Alexandra has worked in a wide range of mediums from ink, watercolor, performances, fabric, sculpture, now primarily working with oil paint. In 2012 she earned her dual-degree in Fine Arts and Art History from Florida International University.

As a Middle Eastern Dance professional, Alexandra strives for authenticity, spice and juicy flavor in her style. With over 10 years (since 2005) of experience performing, teaching and continuous learning, her work is an homage to the legends of this dance and it’s natural and limitless creative energy. In the classroom she guides students to explore their own uniqueness, from execution of movements to story-telling and personalizing on stage. She trains students from both a fitness-model and a soul-body mindfulness as well as the history and culture of the art. Helping students feel grounded and well-connected is a beautiful and fun process for her.

Her childhood inspires much of her creative energy. Elements of nature and family ground her life and her work.

Alexandra was brought up in a loving and creative family with a Cuban father and a Costa Rican mother. Music, dance, laughter and conversation was often shared in her household. She also enjoyed being in the home’s back yard where she found adventure as her best friend, clouds to dream with, and a fish pond to nurture and meditate with.

In her teens, Alexandra was introduced to Middle Eastern Dance by Portia Lange, Founder of Belly Motions, Inc since 2005. At the time, this performing art was rising in popularity all over the world and would quickly become infused into the "Miami Flavor" and international Miami-scene. She currently teaches weekly Belly Dance classes at Belly Motions and RaqSisters.

Alexandra's artistic journey continues to grow. Traveling, teaching, choreographing and performing shape her unique style on canvas and on stage.

Alexandra's artistic influences include a wide variety of performers and artists such as John Cage, Leonora Carrington, John Singer Sargent, Max Earnst, Salvador Dali, Marina Ambromovic, Shirin Neshat, Youssef Nabil, to Oriental Dance artists such as Mahmoud Reda, Farida Fahmy, Nadia Gamal, Nagwa Fouad, Samia Gamal, Fifi Abdo, and many more.

Alexandra has taught fine art with Live Your Art, a creative educational and cultural organization in South Florida, as well as with Door to the Arts, Inc., a non-profit organization spreading art and culture to young learners.

Calligraphic Dancer Project

I began formulating a dance language with a unique "alphabet" as an exploration and combination with the visual arts.

My mission is to explore the value of the arts within a community- to engage the Contemporary Art world with the Middle Eastern Dance world.
