Alex has experimented with many different genres and has found his preferred style – Hip Hop. He strongly believes in dance education by teaching the right values and knowledge of the dance genre. Dance is the birth of music. Respect the music first before the dance. He truly feels that setting the right foundations firmly will determine the tone of a dancer’s journey and growth.
