Robin Williams - Founder/Director
Robin Williams started dancing at the age of 5 and hasn’t stopped dancing yet. Born in Detroit, Michigan Ms. Williams was a principal dancer with the Dance Theater of Harlem and is recognized as one of New York’s highly respected choreographers and dance training principals. She is credited for exposing classical dance to school children in the Harlem area. Performing abroad and throughout the United States, Ms. Williams was a principal dancer with Dancer Theatre of Harlem's Ensemble, Gallman's Dance Theatre, Nanette Bearden's Contemporary Dance Theatre, and Ballet Long Island. Her most rewarding performance to date, however, is fulfilling the dreams of young people everyday at her Uptown Dance Academy.
Ms. Williams teaching career began to flourish as instructor for the Harlem School of Arts, Bernice Johnson's, Ruth Williams, Charles Moore Dance Theatre, Mind builders and Alvin Ailey American Dance Center. Realizing that young dancers, especially minorities, needed more than the principals of dance to survive in the world of the arts, she formed the Uptown Dance Academy in 1996. Since opening its doors, Ms. Williams and staff are dedicated to assist urban youth as they embark on careers in dance and the arts, giving advice on additional education and dance training skill development.
She is a member of the Arts & Business Council, Harlem Arts Alliance, Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, 100 Black Women, Black MBA's and Harlem Business Alliance.
