Lexa Daniels

Originally from Stoneham, Massachusetts, Lexa began her dance training at the Northeast School of Ballet under the direction of Denise Cecere. She continued her education at the University of Utah, graduating magna cum laude with a BFA in ballet performance and minor in nutrition. She began her professional career with Portland Ballet in Maine before joining Louisville Ballet as a trainee in 2014. Two years later, Lexa was honored to become a dancer in the Company in 2016. A few of her favorite performances include Myrtha in Giselle, Rose in The Brown-Forman Nutcracker, the Wife in Andrea Schermoly’s Appalachian Spring, and the Lilac Fairy in Adam Hougland’s The Sleeping Beauty. Lexa has also enjoyed her time dancing in ballets such as Twyla Tharp’s In the Upper Room, George Balanchine’s Serenade and Concerto Barocco, Robert Curran’s Swan Lake as the Queen and Guardian Swan, Brandon Ragland’s I Am, and in an excerpt of Alun Jones’ Trojan Women as Hecuba. Lexa is also on faculty at The Louisville Ballet School, teaching in the Pre-Professional Program.
