Ballet Director at Friedrichstadt-Palast as well as Choreographic Supervisor and Choreographer at VIVID Grand Show.

Alexandra Georgieva’s dance career began when she was six years old. In 1985, she completed her training as a state-certified stage dancer at the National Ballet and Choreography School in Sofia. During that time, she received training from the world’s finest dance instructors. Following a variety of engagements, Georgieva joined Friedrichstadt-Palast as a dancer in 1990, receiving her first solo role there after only six months. She performed on stage for 23 years. While still working, she also completed a training program in dance pedagogy. In early 2008, she ended her dancing career, yet remained loyal to the Friedrichstadt-Palast, where she had been dancing for 18 years. Since the summer 2008, Alexandra Georgieva has been Ballet Director of the Ballet Ensemble at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin, which finds no equal anywhere in the world.

In addition to her work at the Palast, Alexandra Georgieva also invests her time in volunteering. From 2012 to 2016, she was a Member of the Executive Committee of the German Dance Award. Since 2014, she has been a Trustee of the Dell’Era-Gedächtnis-Stiftung, and since 2017 a Member of the Executive Committee at the National German Ballet and Dance Theater Directors Association.
