Dancer Alexis Fletcher

A dance artist, creator, and producer, I have danced with Ballet BC for 14 years. Now independent, I hold the position of Artist in Residence. My creations have been supported by Dancing on the Edge, InFrinGing Festival, New Works, Vernon Performing Arts Centre, The Gordon Smith Foundation, and Canada Council for the Arts In 2019 I was a BC Artist in Residence at Chutzpah! Festival and at Dance Victoria in both 2019 and 2020.

With Ballet BC I was privileged to be part of the core group of dancers, led by Emily Molnar, who built the renowned creation-based company it is today, involved in numerous collaborations with many of today’s leading choreographic voices.

As a producer, I have co-created an outdoor, site-specific multidisciplinary performance space and series with my husband, Sylvain Senez, at our home in Vancouver, called The Dance Deck. This has been running since 2015.

I acknowledge, with gratitude, my privilege to be working and creating on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples: Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
