Hey Fred and Ginger, there’s another dance partnership with wonderful chemistry: Alexandria Brant and Cameron Miller, students at the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance.



“I think us being friends makes our partnering a whole lot better. If you’re comfortable with who you’re dancing with, then your dancing is going to be that much better.”

-Alexandria Brant



“We’ve literally seen each other’s blood, sweat and tears. It’s going to sound so cheesy, but…we are family.”

-Cameron Miller
