Alex Gossen (he/him)
Alex started dancing at sixteen and has not stopped since. He began training in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky at the Louisville Dance Alliance, the Youth Performing Arts School, and, primarily, with local breaking crews. He studied dance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he began developing his own artistic style. Alex earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in May, 2017. Since graduating, he has been working as a professional freelance dancer, choreographer, and teacher. He also competes in breaking battles across the US and abroad. Alex is most interested in how breaking, club dances, street styles, and hip-hop combine with contemporary and modern dance, and how the dance styles we practice create our identity. He now dances with Abby Z and the New Utility in New York City.
