Alex Barber was born in Halifax and grew up in Portugal where she first started her Ballet and Contemporary Dance training at the age of 7. From the age of 15 she moved to the U.K. to audition for Dance schools. She shortly after was accepted onto the Northern School of Contemporary Dance Leeds Foundation course as youngest student and then continued onto the BPA HONS Degree Course. After receiving her degree in dance she found she had a flare for choreography and decided to go back to her home town in Portugal to develop her teaching and choreographic skills.
Between the years of 2014-2018 Alex has done many dance contracts including Casino Show Productions on the Algarve and also toured the island of Kos in Greece where she performed in West End, Around the World and Crazy Cabaret themed shows. It was here where she gained lots of experience in various styles of dance including Jazz, Belly Dance, Bollywood, Lyrical, Modern, Irish and Latin.
