Relationship Status

Currently, Alexa Maxwell and Amar Ramasar are dating. Since 2015, the two have been dating.

Prior to Alexa, Ramasar reportedly planned to marry his ex-girlfriend Elysia Dawn Fridkin in October 2011. Elysia was a dancer in Complexions Contemporary Ballet before becoming the artistic director of Columbia Ballet Collaborative while she was a student at Columbia University.


Alexa, Amar’s partner, was created in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At the age of four, she started taking dancing lessons. She has studied at places including Deanne’s Dance Studio, Minnesota Dance Theatre, and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Since November 2013, she has been a part of the New York City Ballet’s corps de ballet.


Accusing Amar Ramasar and the other two male dancers of distributing sexually graphic images of her and another female dancer without their permission, Alexandra Waterbury filed a lawsuit against them in September 2018.

The lawsuit claims that Alexa accused her ex-boyfriend Chase Finley of sending Amar sexually graphic pictures of her and that Amar then sent Chase a picture of his girlfriend Alexa Maxwell.

In September 2018, the New York City Ballet fired Amar and all the accused males. But after an arbitration from the American Guild of Musical Artists, he was reinstated in April 2019.

This case gained national attention and was primarily followed online. Amar was a cast member of West Side Story when protesters gathered outside the Broadway Theatre on January 31, 2020. He was to be fired, according to the protesters.

Amar’s girlfriend, Alexa, told the New York Times that he had apologized for the incident and that she had accepted his forgiveness. She stated:

“I am not a victim in this, He apologized time and time again, and I think that it’s my choice as a woman to forgive him.”
