Dancer 2011-2014, 2017-2023. Rehearsal Assistant 2021. Instructor, Summer Intensive.
Alexandra Eady (she/her) entered into the space of Ananya Dance Theatre at age 16. ADT’s commitment to social justice and intentional choreographic creations fuel her onstage performances. Alexandra teaches Yorchhā workshops and master classes in schools across the Twin Cities as well as nationally and internationally while on tour. In 2020, she was a collaborator in residence led by Ananya Chatterjea at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, and is a 2021 McKnight Dancer Fellow. Alexandra is committed to performing works that are grounded in narrative and story that do not leave behind ancestral guidance. She works to bring her communities with her and performs in honor of those who have come before, the ones that are witnessing, and for future generations. She is incredibly thankful for her wonderful mentors, teachers, students, friends, family and, most significantly, her parents and sister who give her endless energy and light.
