A little something about Alex...
Originally from San Francisco, California, Alex moved to Tasmania in 1999 at the age of 10. He started popping in his room at the age of 17 being purely inspired by YouTube clips and the possibilities of what he could achieve and become. Alex learned what he could while adding his mix of imagination and abstract creativity to his newly found art form.
In 2007, Alex started up a small dance studio known as Footworkz. The popping community was basically non-existent in Tasmania, especially in his town of Launceston. Footworkz enabled a small clique of poppers, bboys and hip hop enthusiasts to grow.
Since 2007 Alex has travelled around the world gaining knowledge and experience from the originators of hip hop in places like Broadway Dance Centre and Rock Steady Studio in NYC, Fusion Dance Centre in Santa Rosa, CA, Sydney Dance Company, various studios in Malaysia and to many other studios around the states of Australia.
Alex continues to change his thoughts, evolve his imagination and learn as passionately as he has since he started. He always reminds himself that "gaining experience and skills that are recognised by the dance community is no excuse to slow my progress down only to become complacent. Letting it get to my head will only cause me to stall, losing sight of what I truly value."
