A native of Pinar del Rio, Cuba, Victor Alexander was trained at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Arte (ENA) in Havana, graduating in 1992 with a degree in Modern and Cuban folkloric dance. He went on to be a principal dancer for the prominent Contemporánea de Cuba from 1992 to 2002, where both his technical talent and expressive dance style gained national prominence.

Mr. Alexander has studied with distinguished teachers such as Donald McKayle, Chuck Davis, and Jeffrey Bullock and has performed throughout Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and the United States. Since relocating from Cuba to Chicago in 2002, he has performed with Lyric Opera of Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Hedwig Dances, CDI/Concert Dance Inc, and Luna Negra Dance Theater.

His teaching experience is extensive, encompassing local, national and international dance institutions. Included in Dance Magazine’s prestigious “25 to Watch in 2013” list, Mr. Alexander is known for his riveting stage presence as he mixes formidable technique he gained in the rigorous training ground of Cuban dance schools with facility at theatrical interpretation.
