Robin Cantrell is a native of St. Paul, Minnesota, and received her early dance training at Midwest Youth Dance Theatre. She attended the University of Utah as a Willem F. Christensen scholarship recipient, and received a B.F.A. in Ballet Performance as well as a degree in anthropology. Robin has worked with City Ballet of San Diego, Ballet Deviare, Rioult, & Collective Body Dance Lab. Since joining Battery Dance in 2008, Robin has had the opportunity to combine her love of performing and teaching with her fascination for learning about other cultures and choreography. She has performed, taught, and presented her own choreography in over 50 countries worldwide. Robin is also the Artistic Director of her own company: Indelible Dance, now in it’s 7th year.
Robin says, “Dance means more to me than anything. Performing has always been my passion. When this is coupled with two extraordinary experiences, (teaching young people and traveling to new destinations), the result is more fulfilling than I can possibly express in words. That joy can only be expressed through movement.”
