Alexa Kobylarz is a professional dancer, actress and model from Brick, New Jersey. Alexa began dancing at the age of three when her mother enrolled her at a local dance studio. At eleven years old with dreams of someday pursuing a career in entertainment, she began training at Denise Daniele Dance Studios. Under the direction of Denise Blackstone, Alexa studied ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, hip hop, and tap as a member of the City Lights Dance Company until she was seventeen years old; she also had the opportunity to take master classes from highly renowned choreographers such as Finis Jhung and Frank Hatchett. During her time with the company, she competed and participated in regional and national dance competitions and conventions, including New York City Dance Alliance, Jump!, and Tremaine. She was also invited to participate in dance programs outside of her studio, such as the New York City Dance Alliance Summer Intensive and New Jersey’s Governor’s School of the Arts. Upon entering her senior year of high school, Alexa chose to focus solely on hip hop and trained with FR3SH Dance Company, LLC, based out of Matawan, New Jersey. Through FR3SH, Alexa had the opportunity to experience and refine various hip hop styles while learning from choreographers such as Keone and Mariel Madrid, Kyle Hanagami, and Matt Cady; she also competed in the regional hip hop competition World of Dance.
While Alexa planned on focusing on her studies at Tulane University in New Orleans, she could not shy away from her love of dance; after completing her freshman year she became a member of the Honeybees, the dance team of the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets. She represented the Hornets brand across the world during her time with the Honeybees, from Turkey to China to Mexico; she was also a captain during her final season. Through her work in the NBA and love for clothing design, Alexa became the spokesmodel for the professional cheer and dancewear company Angela King Designs, Inc., in addition to designing dancewear for the company. During her time in New Orleans, Alexa also had the incredible opportunity to work with Spike Lee on his film “Oldboy,” as well as perform onstage with Beyoncé during the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show.
Longing to continue in the NBA and further her career in dance, she obtained her BSM in Marketing and moved back to the New York Metropolitan area. Shortly after arriving home, Alexa became a current member of the highly-renowned Brooklynettes, the professional dance team of the Brooklyn Nets. Directed by Kimberlee Garris and Adar Wellington, Alexa has travelled to Singapore to represent the team and appeared in various TV and media features throughout New York City. While she might have accomplished enough for most, Alexa is eager to see what is in store for her and believes that “life isn’t about the destination, but the journey that gets us there.”
