IMG_9644Lexi Williams was born and raised in Cameron Park, California and she started dancing when she was three years old. She found a love for it but it was not until about 2012 that she wanted to make this a career. It was always a fun activity to stay active after school and she quit a couple of times but she always came back because the passion was so strong. Lexi just completed her Bachelors degree in Marketing at California State University, Sacramento. While in college she focused her dance studies to Hip Hop dance with Brandon Greathouse. Through Mr. Greathouse she has had many opportunities to train with The Academy of Villains, Dominic Sandoval (D-Trix), Natasha Gorrie, Morris Isby, and many more. She performed and traveled with the world-renowned painter David Garibaldi in California, Arizona, and Tennessee. She also performed at the California State Fair with Disney superstar Zendaya. Lexi is currently on two Hip Hop teams in Sacramento: The Academy of Kings and Huemen. Both teams have performed and competed at World of Dance, Carnival, Collaboration, and countless shows throughout the Sacramento area.

Lexi’s main style is Hip Hop but she has trained for many years in Jazz and Lyrical as well. She also did some ballet and tap training in her early teens. In her free time Lexi likes to train and continue to push to pursue her dream of becoming a professional dancer. One of her main goals is to travel the world being a backup dancer for huge artists such as Beyoncé or Justin Timberlake. She also wants to be involved in commercials and model in print advertisements. Lexi’s style is extremely different than most dancers. It involves mostly Hip Hop fundamentals but also shows she has jazz and lyrical technique as well. Dance has empowered Lexi to inspire others and help kids grow through life and dance.
