Camille Salmon

Camille Salmon, the founder and director of Brisbane Dance Workshop, speaks to us about her life and coming to Brisbane. The Brisbane Dance Workshop has served the local children and artistic community for over 30 years.

As a young performer, Camille was awarded scholarships to study and perform at the American Dance Festival. She trained in New York City with Martha Graham, Jose Limon, and Rudy Perez. She performed professionally with the Rudy Perez Dance Ensemble in New York and with Kadeka Dance for Kids and Shelia Xergoes in San Francisco.

Camille is also the program director for the San Francisco Arts Education Project, a non- profit organization. She served on the Board of Trustees for the Brisbane School District for twelve years. She’s currently co-chair of San Francisco Arts Providers Alliance.

I enjoyed her reminiscing about coming to Brisbane for the first time and visiting on the day of the famous Western Days brawl. The western days were eventually replaced with many more community events such as the “Day In The Park” and the concerts in the park series which run for about six weeks in the summer. Camille is one of those special people that makes Brisbane the great place it is to live and raise a family.
