Lexie Jo was born and raised in Arizona. She trained in ballet, jazz and modern dance techniques from a young age. Her training included dance intensives at the University of Arizona, Ballet Magnificat! and guest performances in the Moscow Russian Nutcracker Ballet. For the continuation of her training in dance she received her degree in dance performance with an art minor from Oral Roberts Univeristy. She utilizes her degree of study by directing/choreographing dance films. In collaboration with local artist/photographer, Molly Thompson, she creates, and often performs in, a “tangible” embodiment of the art form she so loves by way of dance films. Lexie Jo has been choreographing and performing with local dance companies, has been a presenting artist in the Exchange Choreography Festival the past two years and serves on the board of the Oklahoma Dance Film Festival (OkDFF). She has fallen in love with teaching and expects to continue to inspire the young (and the young at heart!) to chase their passions!
