Artistic Director | Choreographer
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. As a student, 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 and was the first dance major chosen to premiere an evening length concert in The Student Rep: A Festival of Student Works. Robbins performed in works by Rachel List, Anita Feldman, David Parker, Sean Curran, Heather Waldon, Amy Marshall, and Terry Creach. 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. Since graduating, Robbins has performed in works by Sean Fielder, Hillary-Marie Michael, Kristen Collins, Shawn Rawls, and has appeared on Good Day New York with Aaron Tolson. Robbins is currently an ACSM certified personal trainer and in Fall 2017, taught tap as an adjunct professor at Hofstra University. She also teaches tap, jazz, and contemporary at several studios and has contributed exercise techniques to two fitness articles in Dance Spirit Magazine. Most recently, Robbins was the 2018 NACHMO Featured Choreographer in the NACHMO Theater Performances. 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.
