Amanda Robillon began her dance training at the age of 8 years old in South Florida and trained consistently at Carol Colbert’s School of Dance, The Dance Conservatory and Boca Ballet Theatre. Her marching career began her sophomore year at Deerfield Beach High School, marching with The Colts drum corps her junior year (1999). During college (NWSA and FIU), she began teaching as the movement technician at Cooper City High School color guard (2001-2007) and earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance with a minor in education. In 2007, she relocated to Asheville, NC and opened “The Turning Pointe School of Dance,” which she owned and operated for the next 5 years. At TPSD, she taught students classical ballet, pointe, modern dance, jazz and tap. She hosted 5 major concerts as well as holiday performances. She is proud to announce that her dance students have been accepted to the following programs: Alvin Ailey NYC, Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, American Dance Festival (ADF), The Rockettes, North Carolina School of the Arts (NCSA), Boston Ballet and the Marymount Manhattan College Dance Program. While in NC, she also became the color guard director at Brevard High School and consistently judged high school marching band in the color guard caption (2007-2012).
Amanda has recently relocated back to South Florida and is living in Boca Raton, FL. She is excited to be invited onto the color guard staff at Flanagan High School and continue to enrich her students’ lives through the art of dance.
