About Your Teacher:

Alexis Kamitses graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in Biology and Dance in 2002.  After many years spent teaching dance in local area schools and studios and performing in many productions around the greater Burlington area she went on to receive her Masters in Teaching from UVM in 2009 and now currently holds teaching licenses in Science and Dance.  Alexis enjoys studying and teaching many forms of dance including West African, Hip Hop, Modern, Jazz, Ballet, and Salsa. She has been dancing with a local dance company, Jeh Kulu, since 2003, and has also danced and performed with Doug Varone (Bates Dance Festival 2002), Spiel Palast Cabaret (2003-2006), Waiting Room (Flynn Space 2002), Heddy Maalam (Flynn Theatre, 2010), Jennifer Archimbauld (Bates Dance Festival, 2013), and numerous festivals and events around New England. Her choreography has been performed in the Flynn Space, Burlington's Quadricentennial Parade, The SpielPalast Cabaret, Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Festival, and the Bates Dance Festival.  She has had the pleasure of studying dance with such greats as Luigi, Twyla Tharp, Mandy Moore, Shane Sparks, Marty Kudelka, Twitch, as well as numerous other phenomenal teachers. Alexis has a unique background as a dancer as she used to teach Biology and brings a strong foundation in healthy practices and body awareness to her classes. Traveling is also one of her passions and she has had the privilege of traveling and studying dance in France, Spain, Senegal, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. She is also hoping to organize a trip for students to study dance in Spain for the 2015-16 school year. She has been running the dance department at BFA since 2010 and will be also taking over the dance team for this coming 2014-15 season.
