Visiting Assistant Professor, Dance
Office: CPA 225A
Robin Neveu Brown grew up moving and shaking in Hampton Roads, Virginia. From preschool all the way to her current role as a performer, choreographer, teacher, and mother, she has looked at all learning experiences through the eyes of a dancer. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts in dance performance and choreography for the teaching artist from the University of Maryland and is also a Certified Movement Analyst in the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System. She is a certified Pilates instructor, which she has been teaching for a decade, and she earned her BFA in dance from the University of Florida.
After college, Robin spent four years living the New York dancer hustle and bustle. She had the pleasure of working with choreographers Deganit Shemy, Neta Pulvermacher, PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER, Stephanie Miracle, Tzveta Kassabova, Lisa Race, David Dorfman, Sarah Beth Oppenheim, Adele Meyers, and Tara Burns. She performed, taught, and created dance in New York, Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Colorado, and Utah as well as internationally in Russia and Albania. Upon moving to the Washington DC area, her research interests expanded to dance education, community involvement, and site-specific performance and multimedia work. She believes in educating thinking movers and moving thinkers, those that will shape the future of the dance world.
Robin holds an active career as a performer, currently dancing with Orange Grove Dance, under the direction of Colette Krogol and Matt Reeves. She also works collaboratively with her actor/mover husband, Kevin Alan Brown, as co-artistic director of Red Key Dance Theatre, creating physical/visceral/cerebral performance works centered around visual stories and their tellers. Together, they are fascinated in the capacity for dance to live simultaneously within the realms of visual art and theatre; the ability for dance to transport, to challenge, and to soften the viewer/experiencer.
Robin is delighted to return to the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock as Visiting Assistant Professor for 2018-2019.
