Here is an interview with Alexa:

Do you have a nickname?

Lexa or Lex. My family and close friends call me "Shushy" or "Shush" (what I called myself when I was little and couldn't pronounce Alexa or Lexi).

Do you have a job?

I dance professionally, and teach dance at different studios in California.

Do you have any formal dance training?

Yes, I've been training in different places in Arizona since I was young.

At what age did you first start to dance?


What was your reaction to becoming a "So You Think You Can Dance" contestant?

Excitement and disbelief! I have been a huge fan of this show since season one, and I've been growing up dreaming of being a part of it!

What would people be most surprised to learn about you?

My family calls me the miracle baby. My mom went into labor prematurely and my doctors didn't know if I would make it. When I was born, they told my parents I would have learning disabilities and right sided weakness. It's been a big obstacle in my life, but even some of my closest friends don't know about it.

Which choreographer do you look forward to working with?

Mandy Moore! She's a genius.
