TODAYTIX- Broadway's Camille A. Brown Brings the Drama to Modern Dance

If you love musicals, you may have caught Camille A. Brown’s choreography in last year’s Tony Award-winning production of “Once On This Island” or on television in “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.” If you prefer Broadway plays, you might have seen her name in the playbill for “Choir Boy,” where her dance sequences helped bring the central choral music to life. Or you might have read that she’s choreographing the new Broadway-bound take on “Magic Mike,” which starts performances in Boston this fall. But long before she lent her inventive moves to theater, Camille A. Brown was a fixture of the modern dance scene. 

She was a 1997 Presidential Scholar in Dance, went on to perform with Ronald K. Brown’s Evidence, A Dance Company, and then formed her own company, Camille A. Brown & Dancers in 2006 while also creating work for other prominent dance groups like Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Philadanco!, and Complexions.
