Hey Lexy! Thanks for doing the interview.

How old are you, if you don't mind me asking?
• I AM 25! AND LOVING IT :)
How did LexTwerkOut come about? When and how did it start?
• I WAS WATCHING SOME YOUTUBE VIDEOS ON SOME TWERK CHOREO . I WAS THINKING TO MYSELF HEY I NEED TO START A TWERK CLASS BUT MAKE IT ABOUT FITNESS AND THEN I EXECUTED !
What's your main goal with your LexTwerkOut empire? Where do you hope it ultimately goes or turns into?
• I AM MOVING LEXTWERKOUT FORWARD AND IT WILL BE IN DANCE STUDIOS AND GYMS ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND A CERTIFIED FITNESS DANCE CLASS. HAVE INSTRUCTORS ALL OVER THE WORLD. MAYBE EVEN A TV SHOW OR SOMETHING EVEN BIGGER. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE APPAREL AND MANY MORE THINGS AS WELL AS AN APP.
Did you ever think in your wildest dreams that you would have a fully functional business making money from twerking?
• OH NOOOO NO NOT AT ALL.
Personally, I've never seen or thought twerking would be taken this serious, haha. It turned out as something fun for girls to do, and it still is, and looked at as "ratchet" by some, but you've really turned it into an art, with your LexTwerkOut classes.
• THANK YOU , MY BRANDING IS IMPORTANT TO ME AND HOW MY BRAND IS. I FEEL LIKE THIS CLASS IS ABOUT WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND CONFIDENCE. IM TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK 100 PERCENT DIFFERENT ABOUT BEING SEXY.
Some people may not take your LexTwerkOut business serious, like "Do girls really get a workout from twerking??". I'll let you answer that and expand on it.
• WELL THESE GIRLS GET TO LOSE ABOUT 400-700 CALORIES IN MY CLASS SO THERE ARE RESULTS, AND ITS A FUN WARMING ENVIRONMENT. THEY CAN THINK WHAT THEY WANT BUT UNTIL THEY TAKE IT I DONT WANNA HEAR IT LOL.
Do girls sign up to your classes to get a workout from twerking or come to learn how to twerk? I'm sure it's a mixture of both, but break it down in percentages. Is it 50/50? You tell me.
• HONESTLY I HAVE NO IDEA! I THINK THAT THEY COME TO TWERK FOR SURE BUT MY CLASS IS CALLED LEXTWERKOUT FOR A REASON. BUT EITHER WAY YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO TWERK AND GET A WORKOUT AT THE SAME TIME.
You've had a lot of celebs / Vine and Instagram sensations that has come to your classes. Can you give us a quick rundown of who you've had the pleasure of twerking with? Haha
• I HAVE HAD CHRISTINA MILIAN, TINY HARRIS,MEL B , KARRUECHE TRAN, LIANE V, TAMAR BRAXTON.. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE I FORGOT EEK.. BUT THERE ARE MORE TO COME!
Do you reach out to them or have you had some that have reached out to you to come to a class session?
• IT HAS BEEN A MIXTURE.
Who've been the best twerkers out of the celebs / Vine and Instagram sensations that's come to your class?
• HAHA THEY ALL ARE PRETTY DANG GOOD!
Ok, Lets go back to your early days. At what age did you learn how to twerk? And what made you start doing it?
• I AM A SINGER SO IM STILL WORKING ON MUSIC . LEXTWERKOUT MUSIC ACTUALLY, THE VOLUME WILL BE CALLED #TWERKTUNES
Don't take this the wrong way, but you don't strike me as the type of girl that would be as good at twerking as you are. I don't know, maybe it's because of how super sweet and innocent you look, haha. Anyway, at what age did you start getting really good at twerking?
• NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER, HONESTLY YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED TO SEE WHO CATCHES ON FAST OR NOT. GOING AGAINST ALL STEREO TYPES HAHA! BUT IVE BEEN A DANCER MY WHOLE LIFE SO IT MAY COME EASIER FOR ME.
What do you love most about twerking?
• I LOVE LETTING LOSE AND FEELING LIKE BEYONCE WHEN I WALK OUT HAHA
How often do you twerk?
• ALMOST EVERYDAY!!!! LITERALLY IF NOT IN CLASS , IN THE STORE, IN THE CAR… EVERYWHERE.
Do you ever get into any twerk battles? Girls challenging you to a twerk-off?
• HAHA NOT REALLY I DO LIKE TO PROMOTE MY CLASS EVERYWHERE I GO THOUGH LIKE PASS MY CARDS OUT AND WHAT NOT. BUT I ALWAYS GET "TWERK FOR ME " BECAUSE PROBABLY LIKE YOU SAID I DONT LOOK LIKE I CAN HAHA SO I BUST OUT AND DO A MOVE AND THEY ARE SHOCKED LOL
What's your Go-To or favorite twerking move that you love doing the most?
• RED NOSEE!!!! MY FAVORITE.
Can you name all the twerking moves that you know, or a master of?
