Alex currently resides in her hometown of Saskatoon, SK, where she graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with her BFA in Acting in 2011. She grew up Ukrainian folk dancing and has strong roots connecting her to the stories of her heritage, and thus sparked her love of physical storytelling and creation. In recent years, she's worked as a choreographer for independent and professional productions, and has treaded into the waters of playwriting and directing.
Since obtaining her BFA, Alex has gone on to further hone her craft by completing the Globe Theatre Actor Conservatory Training program in 2012, and the One Yellow Rabbit Devised Theatre Intensive in 2014. She's taught theatre and creation classes to children and young adults at Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon, and has brought shows and dance workshops to children in community schools all across the province of Saskatchewan.
Though her BFA is in acting, Alex has found many passions within the realm of theatre. In September of 2015, Alex was Assistant Director for a production of the Elvis Presley musical All Shook Up under the direction of Stephanie Graham at the Globe Theatre, and coming up in May, Alex will be back at the Globe assistant directing The Little Mermaid, and doing some movement and dance choreography for Station Arts' production of Tent Meeting in June. Following that, Alex will be collaborating with Thigh High Theatre to bring an exciting new creation to the 2017 Saskatoon Fringe Festival. In September, she's thrilled to be a part of Free Flow Dance's Works In Progress Series for choreographers, and will be presenting a new creation based on slavic folklore.
As a person with the creative spirit, Alex is obsessed with possibility and is always looking for the next story to tell, and all the different ways in which to tell it. She lives for the thrill of turning a thought or abstract idea into something real, tangible, and effectual.
When she's not on the stage or making something for the stage, Alex, being a connoisseur of bourbon in particular, can be found creating fine cocktails at a swanky lounge in Saskatoon, as well as frequenting the many coffee shops downtown. She's an avid foodie, wanderlust, karaoke enthusiast and yogi.
