Asabi Alexander | Just Getting Started


Dance Mogul: What inspired you to start dancing?
Asabi Alexander: When I was about 10 years old I used to go on YouTube and search random videos with no particular subject. One day I came across a video of a girl named Dymond Cruz. I loved her! Ever since that one video, I fell in love with dance and continued to watch videos of her and many different choreographers.

Dance Mogul: How did you develop a work ethic to train?
Asabi Alexander: Just from watching videos and continuously freestyling in my living room and knowing that this is what I love to do.

Dance Mogul: When was your big break?
Asabi Alexander: I joined a training program that I am currently apart of called kreativmndz elite. Their program has presented me with many opportunities to grow, be confident and consistent.

Dance Mogul: What have been some of your memorable moments on stage?
Asabi Alexander: I remember one performance in high school I did a contemporary dance to a gospel song which had never been done before and I just remember seeing people in the audience in tears. All I could remember was me being as vulnerable as possible to reach the audience and I did just that.

Dance Mogul: Based on your experience now what would you tell your younger self?
Asabi Alexander: I would tell my younger self to be patient and to always do what it takes to make myself better. I would also tell myself to stay confident in who I am and always put God first no matter what.

Dance Mogul: What was it like to perform at the 2016 VMAs?
Asabi Alexander: The VMA’s was my first professional job dancing for an artist such as Rihanna. To be able to perform at the VMA’s was an unexplainable experience. All I can say is I had a great time and it was a dream come true to be able to be on stage dancing professionally. I would not change one thing about it.

Dance Mogul: Where do you see your dance brand in the next 10yrs and how would you like to help empower the dance community?
Asabi Alexander: I see my dance brand as very creative, confident and innovative. I also see it as an inspiration to other dancers to know that they can be themselves and be successful. I would encourage the dance community to stay true to who you are, always work hard and continue to be a greater you.

Dance Mogul: What advice do you have for the younger generation of dancers?
Asabi Alexander: Always do your research, stay trained, stay in love, and to know that everyone has their time and patience will keep you on the right path.

Dance Mogul: Is there anyone you would like to thank?
Asabi Alexander: I want to thank my parents and grandma for always believing in me and investing in me. I want to thank my boyfriend for keeping me on the right path and constantly pushing me to be better. Without him constantly pushing me I would not be here today. I want to thank Kolanie Marks and Antoine Troupe for believing in me as well and investing their time into making me a stronger, more confident dancer. Without KMelite I would not be in this position. I want to thank my best friend Tatiyana for always listening to me and never giving up on me. I want to thank Hi-Hat for having such an amazing team, believing in me and being great at what she does. I want to thank Tanisha Scott for being such a joy to work with and her having faith in what she did not know ( which was me). Thank you to all my supporters and nonsupporters for keeping me going on this beautiful journey just for the love of dance.
