Alejandra Acevedo, Programs & Operations Associate, LES Young Artists of Color Fellowship Facilitator

Alejandra Acevedo, born and raised in Puerto Rico, is an artist/performer based in New York City. With a BFA in Dance from Philadelphia’s University of the Arts (2017) she defines herself as a multidisciplinary performing artist. As a dancer and a Caribbean woman, Alejandra is interested in how an experience can create movement. No matter how or where the body is, (simultaneously absorbing new material) it always carries cultural information. The work that she creates is looking for a balance between what is already “hers” and what is “new” for her. Moving between community and professional spaces, she is finding that sweet spot where both can be an inspiring source.
