Robbie Brassington – Contemporary Technique & Choreography

With a strong background in creative dance from Over the Moon (1991-2007), Robbie only began to consider a career in dance after experiencing the Australian Youth Dance Festival in 2006.

After performing in the 2007 Rock Eisteddfod he won a full scholarship and began his full-time dance training at The Edge Performers School. In 2011 he completed a Bachelor of Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts.

Robbie has performed with Erth Visual and Physical Theatre, The Ministry of Delight, and Liquid Skin Dance Company. He has appeared in multiple Castlemaine State Festivals, and in 2017 was the rehearsal director for the opening of the festival. Robbie has created an improvised performance in The Little Con with fellow VCA students under the name "One Rehearsal Short of Perfection". He also performed "Vanishing Point" with choreography by Stephanie Lake in collaboration with Robin Fox's Giant Theremin. Robbie worked as an intern at Melbourne's newly developed youth dance company Yellow Wheel and for their performance collective "Push".
