Assistant Professor – Fixed Term
Dancer, Actress, Educator, and Choreographer Alexandria Davis holds an MFA in dance choreography from the University of Michigan. Alexandria earned her BFA in Dance Performance and Dance in Medicine certification from the University of Florida.
Alexandria’s pedagogy is curated to promote efficiency and longevity in dance practice and performance. Dedicated to creative practice and arts advocacy, she uses storytelling and metaphor to stimulate self-investigation. By centering joy in every movement experience, Alexandria seeks to cultivate learning spaces that foster resilience and total body integration. Through her embodied practice, she encourages students and collaborators to refocus and reconnect the breath cycle to the life center/pelvic floor.
Alexandria creates dance theater, using choreography to investigate social commentary while advocating for liberation and alternative narratives. Influenced by her community and academic investigations of choreography, performance, ritual, and technique – Alexandria identifies as a post-modern choreographer. She generates her movement from (HER)story, abstracting and juxtaposing Black History to an ever-evolving American Myth of Culture and Representation.
