Alexandra Clancy is an emerging performer and choreographer in Vancouver with a love of dance and passion for tap. Growing up, she trained and developed her skills in all genres of dance. She was an apprentice/understudy for the prestigious Tapestry Dance Company’s 25th season performing and touring across North America.
She has attended and performed at multiple tap festivals such as DC, LA, NY, Chicago, and Vancouver. Alexandra was privileged to train extensively, learning from tap masters such as Dianne Walker, Jason Samuels Smith, Derick Grant, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards, Chloe Arnold and many more. Alexandra is a proud alumna of the first tap program held at the iconic Jacobs Pillow, and auditioned and returned for a second time for another intensive two weeks.
Alexandra had a role in ‘A Chronological Life Story of a Few Tap Dancers’ directed by Matt Sheilds, and was grateful to dance in Lisa La Touche’s tap dance show titled ‘Hold On’. She was given the opportunity to perform in a Tri-Tone Productions show, founded by Tasha Lawson, as both a solo artist and in an ensemble working closely with musicians. She performed a piece at the Kennedy Centre in DC as part of the inaugural first full-length tap show. She is thankful to have danced in many of Danny Nielsen’s shows, most recently at the Scotia Dance Centre in the Discover Dance Series. Alexandra has a unique voice blending both tap and contemporary dance and looks forward to continuing to share her adoration of dance while teaching and performing both locally and internationally.
