Joseph Alexander has been a student, dancer, teacher, ballet master and now director of TheEdwardMorganBallet.

He was born in Stockton, California where he began his early dance training at age 3, at the school of Cheryl Fosgate, and then at age 12 at Ballet San Joaquin. Then for a year and a half he studied at the original Joffrey Ballet School, where he met Edward Morgan, who selected him for The Stars of The American Ballet Tour, with the Joffrey Concert Dancers.
After the tour, Alexander went onto dance with Milwaukee Ballet, and
The National Ballet of Canada.  Alexander was not feeling artistically fulfilled with these companies. Then he heard Edward Morgan was starting a new ballet company. 

Mr. Morgan, because of his belief in how ballet should be today, told Alexander if he wanted to dance with his company, he would have to retrain. Alexander agreed and started one on one classes with Morgan.

Alexander then became an apprentice, then moved to soloist in 2002. While a soloist Alexander began to train under Morgan to become a ballet teacher. While teaching students at TheEdwardMorganBallet he also traveled, giving master classes with the Morgan syllabus, in Gulf Port Mississippi, Stockton California, Detroit Michigan, and San Antonio Texas. Also teaching abroad in Chaliroi and Brussels Belgium, and Paris France. At this time, he proved himself in Edward Morgan's home town, and was appointed ballet master. With the exiting of Daniel Scott, and Alexander's business skills, as well as producing media events. Edward Morgan had no choice, but to stamp him in 2008, director of TheEdwardMorganBallet.
Now working alongside Mr. Morgan, Alexander brings with him his own ideas, and a fresh approach to art, from a theatrical performers perspective. From stage to television, he creates unique performances mixing media, fine art, music, dance, film, and fashion.

At the moment, he
is filming a documentary, "The Life of Edward Morgan," and producing, The Edith Piaf 100th Anniversary Project.
