Alexander Biber Dancing the role of a "Hunter" in Peter and the Wolf
Alex was introduced to the performing arts at a young age as he was born into a theater family in Carson City, Nevada. It wasn’t until later in life that he began to concentrate more intently on his ballet training at Sierra Nevada Ballet, under the direction of Rosine Bena, before joining the Sacramento Ballet in 2009. Sacramento audiences have enjoyed seeing Alex in a variety of different ballets including: Trey McIntyre’s Second Before the Ground, Twyla Tharp’s Nine Sinatra Songs (Something Stupid), Ron Cunningham’s Carmina Burana and George Balanchine’s Who Cares?. As well as performing, Biber takes great joy in creating new works for Sacramento Ballet’s annual ‘Beer & Ballet’ program, such original creations include: Royal Theme, As Time Goes By…, #Hipstoria & most recently Luck of the Draw. As a founding member of Capital Dance Project, he premiered his narrative-based mystery work XIII, Murder At The Crest and has collaborated with local artists Elijah Jenkins and a Celtic Band for their ‘Behind The Barre’ showcase. Biber is also a gifted dance photographer – capturing photos of rehearsal, backstage activities and intimate moments of the dancers, which are rarely seen by the audience. Alex is currently teaching and serving as a Ballet Master for Sierra Nevada Ballet.
