Alex McLaughlin is a dancer, choreographer, and seasoned instructor based out of Boise, ID. Her passion for dance has allowed her to experience many different styles and travel abroad developing her craft. She teaches hip hop, jazz funk, cardio grooves, pop performance, improvisation, and varying conditioning and strengthening classes. Alex is a part of CoreVette Dance, a girl-power group of female creators, that has shared the stage with many artists and collaborated with Treefort Music Festival, Yoga Fort, Shambhala Music Festival, Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, Red Light Variety Show, Shades of Black Multicultural Showcase, Fusion Fashion Week, Boise Music Festival, Boise Green Festival, and the RAW artists showcase, keeping her dance career well rounded in all areas.
Alex believes that the power of movement lies not in the fame or attention, but in the exchange that can come from dancer to audience, dancer to dancer, and dancer to self. “I believe the purpose of the natural artistry we are all birthed with is to express the depths of our being and to share them with the world. Art has a power unlike any other. It is our duty as dancers to shine our light, whatever wattage or color, with everyone we meet and illuminate the corners of those who have not yet found theirs.” Motivated by her student’s and fellow teacher’s individual expressive potential, she infuses her classes with something more than counts, insuring that everyone leaves feeling more empowered and inspired to unleash their unique power. Art, dance, music, and the way they fuse together through the community in Boise has inspired Alex to spend her creative energy developing the urban movement culture of The City of Trees, alongside CoreVette, and bring up the next generation of gem state movers.
