Alexis Robbins

Alexis Robbins, a native of Wakefield, RI, began dancing at the age of two with just a pair of patent leather tap shoes.  Her love for tap and contemporary dance led her to choreograph for several studios in the RI/MA area as well as join the Boston Tap Company under the direction of Sean Fielder. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Hofstra University with a B.A. in Dance and B.S. in Exercise Science.  Her tap and modern choreography was chosen for the Gala Concert at the American College Dance Festival Association Northeast regional conference in 2013 and as the first alternate to represent the Northeast region at the National College Dance Festival in 2014. During her career at Hofstra she also had the opportunity to choreograph for the 12th Annual Max Kolb Telethon, premiere an hour long concert of seven different pieces in The Student Rep: A Festival of Student Works, and perform works by Rachel List, Anita Feldman, David Parker, Sean Curran, Heather Waldon, Amy Marshall, and Terry Creach.  Alexis has also performed in works by Sean Fielder, Hillary-Marie Michael, Kristen Collins and has appeared on Good Day New York with Aaron Tolson.  Robbins was awarded the Sosonoff Outstanding Junior Dance Major scholarship in 2014, the Citation of Merit Award in 2015, and was the president and co-founder of the tap club RHYTHMiX at Hofstra University.  Alongside choreographing and performing, Robbins is a Certified Personal Trainer through ACSM and teaches tap and contemporary at several studios on Long Island.  As the founder and Artistic Director of kamrDANCE she hopes to reach audiences with her quirky and comedic repertoire and inventive ways of fusing tap and modern dance.
