Alex Wong

Professional Dancer - Contemporary

Alex Wong was born in Canada and began his dance training at the age of seven. He studied with the Goh Ballet Academy in Vancouver, Canada and in 2004 became the first Canadian to win the Prix de Lausanne competition in Switzerland. In 2005, Alex danced briefly with American Ballet Theatre before joining Miami City Ballet, where he eventually was promoted to the rank of soloist. After his time at MCB, Alex auditioned for FOX’s hit television show “So You Think You Can Dance” and made it through to the top 10 before he had to resign due to an injury. Following his recovery, Alex signed with Bloc Talent Agency in New York. By February 2011, Alex had booked commercials and several print jobs as well as his first television job since SYTYCD as part of the dance ensemble for NBC’s TV series “Smash” directed by Steven Spielberg. Alex has appeared on “The Ellen Show”, “The Voice” danced with LMFAO and has rejoined “So You Think You Can Dance” as an All-Star. He has created his first dance single “Crave,” which has been released on iTunes and Amazon, filmed his own music video, starred in a short film shot in Los Angeles, and had his Broadway debut, playing the role of “Sniper” in the Original Broadway Cast of the Disney musical “Newsies”. Alex has since worked on Dancing With The Stars, choreographed and starred in the Buick Car Launch in China, SYTYCD Vietnam, Glee, ABC Disney World Christmas Parade and the Microsoft “Surface” commercial. Most recently, Alex has performed in NBC’s Peter Pan Live and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, among others, and has choreographed for Olympic Gold Metalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White.

Dance Convention Teachers

All faculty teachers are scheduled to attend all locations, and to teach in all three levels. While all our teachers plan to be at each and every location, occasionally other professional obligations arise and a faculty member or two cannot attend. Excel works with many unbelievable teachers and will replace anyone absent with an equally qualified teacher. Our confirmed faculty for each city will be posted (with the schedule) one week in advance.
