Alexandra Page has been dancing in the crew scene since 2013, but has started a new journey from 2018 to involve herself in the dance community and begin a dance focused film making collective - Untuck3d films. Untuck3d films began as a reaction to the lack of female videographers and therefore a lack of female perspective and representation in online content.
Alex believes people should not hold back on what they have to say - the more perspectives the better, the more voices the richer we are and the closer we are to understanding our everyday experiences. she has shared with us in the Takeover what she has learnt over the past 3 years from creating instagram and branded social media content along with visuals for national art festivals.
This is the third session in our DANZ Social Media Takeover 2020 Season...
