Lexie Powell is a Chewelah, WA native. She began taking ballet classes nearly 20 years ago with the majority of her ballet training taking place at Northern Ballet and Performing Arts under the direction of Ann Marie Benedict. After a childhood filled with dancing, Lexie left her hometown to pursue dance at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. Lexie graduated from WWU in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. Her degree emphasized both performance and choreography with a focus on modern technique. For her BFA capstone solo performance Lexie had the pleasure of working with Natascha Greenwalt of Seattle who is the co-founder of Coriolis Dance.
Lexie began teaching ballet in 2012. She currently teaches modern and ballet technique at Dance Arts Academy and Northern Ballet and Performing Arts. She recently graduated from Washington State University’s College of Pharmacy in 2019 with a PharmD. Lexie is thrilled to be involved in Vytal Movement Dance Company and to help build the arts in Spokane!
