Lexi Beriswill

Lexi grew up in Cedar Park, Texas where she was trained in various styles of dance. She was First Lieutenant for the Cedar Park High School “Celebrities,” and was a member of the Elite Company at the Dance Center. She received a scholarship to dance and compete as a member of the National Dance Alliance champions, the Blinn College Treasures. Lexi was accepted into the Department of Dance at Sam Houston State University where she completed her BFA. While attending SHSU she performed under the direction of award winning choreographers Andy Noble and Dionne Noble of NobleMotion Dance, Dana Nicolay of Nicolay Dance Works, and Johnathan Charles. She was honored with the SHSU Choreography Award in 2014, and one of her pieces was nominated to compete in the American College Dance Festival.

While Lexi was completing her BFA she also worked as a Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Tech. She quickly realized that she has a passion for assisting in the process of physical rehabilitation and injury prevention education. Upon graduation, Lexi studied to become a certified Pilates Instructor and taught Pilates to patients who suffer from various back injuries. Because of her background in the medical field, Lexi values the importance of nutrition and injury prevention, and she stresses their significance to each of her students.

Lexi has been teaching and choreographing in the Austin and Houston areas for the past six years. She is currently in her first year as a Lyrical and Contemporary instructor at Shirley McPhail School of Dance. Her goal as an instructor is to encourage her students to always push themselves to become stronger, more technical dancers, to challenge them to find and embrace their own personalized style, and to inspire them to become passionate performers.
