Alexie's small frame hasn't held her back from accomplishing some of her biggest dreams in the entertainment industry. She is a spunky, fun-loving Filipina-American actress, dancer, teacher, and choreographer. She is best known for her warm smile and heartfelt dance moves on the hit U.S. version of "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 7 as a top 11 finalist. Her contagious optimism lit up the small screen.
Most recently, she has appeared on Glee with Pitch Perfect's Skylar Astin, Mcdonald's Commercials for Pumpkin Spice Latte & White Chocolate Mocha, and a guest dance spot on the hit web-series "Side Effects".
A born entertainer, she began dancing at local dance studios, performing in competitions, and assisting on national touring dance conventions. She was introduced to the entertainment industry at the age of six, when she performed on Star Search with "The Hip-Hop Kids". She has kept her face and talent in front of the public on commercials and industrials for Mcdonald's, Bing, Disney, Payless, Nissan, Nordstroms, and Reebok; music videos for Prince, Nelly Furtado, Macy Gray, Daft Punk, Pharrell, Charice Pempengco and the Pussycat Dolls. On film and television her credits also include the 64th Academy Awards with Debbie Allen, the 84th Academy Awards choreographed and produced by Adam Shankman, "America's Got Talent" & “X-Factor” with creative director Brian Friedman, Disney’s Camp Rock 2 Summer Promo, and Nickelodeon’s “How to Rock”. Alexie added a life changing accomplishment to her resume by graduating from UCLA earning her B.A. in World Arts and Cultures: Dance & Choreography. She also had guest spots on The Jay Leno, Carson Daly late-night shows, and "Entourage" when she was a LA Laker Girl during 2003-2005 seasons.
Her talents also extend into acting. As a young performer, she had featured roles in the video series "Guidepost Junction" and "Kid's Songs." She played the beloved Grace, a series regular, on the award winning children's television series "The Huggabug Club" where she was showcased as a triple threat. Later, she would go on to perform with the East West Player's Asian Pacific Tales Tour and as the lead in the popular action short film "Deathblow IX." Alexie believes there is no limit when it comes to honing your crafts as an artist, a belief that has brought her to currently study with esteemed acting coaches and at UCB Theater for improv.
She is grateful to be able to inspire others, and equally, loves being inspired. Her way of thanking the universe is by giving back. She performs at charity events for countless issues close to her heart, teaching and choreographing. She has taught for studios close to home, including the UCLA Dance Team, which she was also a member of in college. She is on faculty with the nation-wide touring Showstoppers Dance Convention, and has taught across countries, including Japan, Cuba (touring with, Contra-tiempo, a salsa dance troupe), and the Philippine Islands.
When Alexie is not pursuing and mastering her irrepressible love for performance she is an avid traveler, a book-culinary-film-fashion-music-museum-photography enthusiast, and enjoys making memories with her husband, family, friends, and her favorite dogs Axl Rose (her rescued Pit-bull) and Zen (her family's Shiba Inu).
