How well do you know your coaches? Each month we like to highlight one of our Rock Star coaches, so that YOU can get to know them better! This month we are highlighting Lexi Dultz, Chrome (Senior 2), Gems (Junior 3), and Diamonds (Senior Coed 5) coach!
"I would say my specialty is stunting, choreographing stunts and pyramids. Constructing a stunt sequence/pyramid in a routine can definitely be stressful, but it is my absolute favorite thing to do and always so worth the stress! " -Lexi
Learn more about Lexi:
Name (or nickname): Alexa- Lexi for short!
Where are you from: Born and raised in Newtown, Pa!
Where do you work: Rock Starz!
Experience in the industry: I cheered for Council Rock's recreational cheer program for many years. When it transitioned into All Star in 2007, I was on the very first Rock Starz team ever which was a Senior 3 team. After that, I cheered on a Senior 5 Worlds team for 2 years called Dream Extreme. When I graduated High School I started to help out with Dream Extreme and I realized that coaching was something I really loved to do. This is my 6th season coaching at Rock Starz and these past 6 years have molded me into the coach that I am today.
Favorite skill to teach: I honestly love teaching ALL skills but if I had to choose, it would probably be any twisting stunts like a full down, double down, full up, or double up!
Favorite food: Buffalo chicken anything!
Favorite Disney movie: Enchanted.
Favorite Emoji: Way too many! But I'll probably have to narrow it down to 😂 or 💎 because I use those all the time!
Three things on your bucket list:
1. Travel more- especially to Greece, and Bora Bora!
2. Finish Bachelor's degree (so soon!) and then go for my Master's.
3. Learn to play the guitar!
Most memorable moments as a coach:
"In 2013 I coached the first Worlds team at Rock Starz ever and helped lead them to the World Championships where they placed very well. In 2014, not only did Diamonds make it to Worlds their second season, they scored top 5 out of 60 teams and moved to semi-finals from the Prelim round. Last season, we unfortunately did not have a Worlds team but it allowed me to focus more on my lower levels and I was able to help lead my Junior 2 Emeralds and Senior 3 Sapphires to The Summit which is extremely difficult to get a bid to. Not only did these teams get bids to attend such a prestigious competition, Sapphires won the Prelim round and advanced straight to Finals where they placed top 10! "
And lastly, "after a year break, Diamonds are back and stronger than ever! Just recently, they won a full paid bid to Worlds which is $25,000 to help pay for their expenses. This is the first full paid bid for Rock Starz ever! All of these moments have been so exhilarating and very special. I am so proud and grateful that I could be part of leading these teams to these amazing victories. It makes it all worth it to see these kids celebrate themselves after all of their hard work!" -Lexi
