16 year old Alexa Blair Robertson is a pre-professional dancer and aspiring surgeon. She currently lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her parents, two sisters, and two puppies. At age 4, Robertson was diagnosed with a stage 4 Wilms Tumor in which she endured multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation to defeat. Following her battle with cancer, she moved to Raleigh where she began training with CC & Company Dance Complex under the direction of Christy Curtis. Robertson has been dancing competitively with “The Core” for eleven years. Now cancer free, Robertson has spent a decade working with and learning from the best choreographers in the business, and has now begun working professionally.  She is equally dedicated when it comes to her academics. A junior at Heritage High School, Robertson obtains a top spot in her school and is involved in a variety of honor societies and clubs. Alexa aspires to pursue a career as a pediatric surgeon after achieving her commercial dance dreams. Alexa actively tries to give back to her community as much as possible by creating philanthropic fundraisers rooted within her dance studio (Operation Love & CC’s Toiletries) and by helping to teach special education classes at her high school. She also aims to raise awareness for childhood cancer by participating in national campaigns such as Dance Hope Cure. Currently, she is apart of the MVA+ program directed by Kyle Hanagami where she travels assisting and learning from the Velocity Dance Convention faculty. Alexa is immensely grateful for every opportunity she has to give back and to continue to grow in every aspect of life.
