Before and After – Alexis Miller

Yes it’s true. A dancer begins as a regular child, and with dance training at CRS, look at the great development…

Alexis Miller

From CRS to Joffrey Ballet NYC!

Alexis Miller started dancing at age 4 with Christine Rich.

Her mom was convinced that she looked like a dancer and Alexis was so inspired by watching videos starring the New York City Ballet that she watched them over and over again.

Since her early beginnings with ballet and tap she has studied ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, acrobatics, modern, and acting.

With steady year-round training she has achieved a high level of dance accomplishment.

Alexis began private coaching with Ballet Director Luciana Rezende at the age of 9 and performed leading roles in the Recital 2011 excerpted ballet Raymonda and Recital 2012 excerpted ballet La Fille Mal Gardee.

Alexis is also accomplished as a choreographer through the Christine Rich Studio’s Student Choreography Project.

She has presented choreography at CRS Summer Dance Concerts as well as at 2012 Chicago Dance Connection.

Alexis has nurtured younger dancers by assisting teachers with younger classes and has maintained outstanding grades academically.

amazing ballet dancer
Alexis competed in the Youth America Grand Prix with an ensemble in 2010 and as a soloist in 2011.

She also drew the attention of master teachers while attending the 2011 Indianapolis City Ballet Gala and the 2011 and 2012 Indianapolis City Ballet Master Class Series.

In 2013 Alexis auditioned and was accepted into the Joffery Ballet School NYC Summer Intensive.

Her talent and years of dedicated training shone brightly in New York.

Alexis was invited into the full time program for professionals and had her choice of going to Russia, but she chose NYC which was fitting since she started at age 4 with NYC Ballet videos!

Congratulations Alexis.

We are so proud of you!!
