Andrea's natural grace led her beloved mother Karen Macaulay to enroll Andrea in ballet lessons at 5 years old, soon turning to serious classical training by the age of 8.
Her talent took her from LA to New York to Europe as a professional dancer, until she returned to Hollywood to study acting.
Forced to retire from ballet at 18 when her 5'10" height 6'3" on point! Andrea Alexis Parker learned to walk on the sand in Newport Beach, California.
While continuing her studies, Andrea performed in several plays in Los Angeles where her talent was recognized by the legendary Susan Smith, eponymous head of what was then the hottest boutique talent agency in town.
By the time she was 11, Andrea's passion for dance was so strong that she began to leave home each summer to continue her formal ballet training in NYC and San Francisco.
