With the events of the pandemic, Alexandra decided to utilize her spare time in growing her foundation, Peace Love Leotards (“PLL”), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bridge the socioeconomic gap in the performing arts by providing new and gently used dancewear to dancers in need and to provide virtual classes to those who cannot attend classes in person, whether due to cost, logistics or the pandemic. Since April, she has garnered 8 dancewear companies as partners from across the globe, expanding to Paris and Australia. She has received $5,000 in cash donations, including from major sponsors: The Delores Barr Weaver Legacy Fund and Publix. Since April, Peace Love Leotards has been featured in 12 newspapers across the state of Florida, in Pointe Magazine and Dance Spirit Magazine, 2 of the largest dance magazines in the world, and in a special on air news segment by WFLA News.
Currently, PLL has over 16 ambassadors and 2 junior ambassadors around the world. In addition to dancewear, Alex has procured dance teachers and performers who have agreed to provide a virtual dance class curriculum to those that cannot afford to attend dance classee. With determination and grit, Alex is determined to have PLL make a lasting difference in the dance community.
