Lexi grew up in Minnesota where she started her ballet training at Minnesota Dance Theatre (MDT).  When she was 14 years old, Lexi moved to Pennsylvania where she spent three years training at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB).  When she was 17, Lexi spent the summer at SAB and was asked to stay for their winter term during the last hour of the last week of the program. 

Lexi  moved to NYC and only a few months later received the invitation to become an apprentice.  One year later, she received a contract with NYCB as a member of the Corps de Ballet.
