Hi, I'm Alex. I love working with wedding couples to choreograph their first dance as life partners. 


I believe anyone can learn to dance for their wedding. It just takes patience--with the learning process and with each other--and regular practice leading up to the big day. 

With preparation, you’ll find yourself looking forward to dancing together and sharing your new skills with your family and friends. Nothing makes me happier than helping wedding couples gain confidence dancing together.

Let me show you how fun it can be.

I grew up in Beckley, West Virginia where I studied ballet, jazz, modern and tap from an early age. After earning a degree in art history from Davidson College, I settled in Charlotte with my husband, Jordan and rescue pup, Ptolemy. 

I trained in ballroom, latin and social dances post-college and began choreographing wedding dances in 2009. I draw from my diverse dance background to choreograph and customize wedding dances for couples of all skill levels. Since officially launching First Dance Charlotte in 2015, I have taught more than 450 couples how to dance for their wedding.

Taking lessons from First Dance Charlotte was so enjoyable we have even talked about going back sometime soon to have other dance styles under our belt for upcoming weddings that we will attend.
