Alexandria Lattimore is a performing artist, dancer, writer and orator. She works with communities and individuals to express their histories and narratives through art, particularly through movement. Her mission is to facilitate expression to drive agendas surrounding community cultivation, cultural celebration, urban renewal and economic development. 

 
 

Originally from Chelmsford, MA, Alexandria Lattimore began training in classical ballet at age 8 under the tutelage of Judith Keochoven at the Academy of Ballet Arts. She matriculated from Chelmsford High School to Duke University, where she continued her dance training while studying history. She worked with choreographers such as Andrea Woods (Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company), Tony Johnson (ADF), Julie and Tyler Walters (Joffrey Ballet) and Reggie Wilson (Fist and Heel) and choreographed her own work for the 50th Anniversary of Black Students at Duke and Ark Dances. In 2014, she produced her first full-length work, “A People to Believe In,” with the residents of a historically black neighborhood. Using oral history, poetry and movement, she explored the stories of triumph and disappointment in the community pre and post the civil rights movement. Alexandria moved to Boston after graduating and eventually joined DSundanceX, a contemporary ballet company directed by David Sun. Alexandria is excited to take her training and passion to New York City this fall.
