Randy Barron

Choreographer & Kennedy Center Teaching Artist


Randy has danced and choreographed professionally since 1978 with ballet and modern dance companies across the United States. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, with minors in Chemistry and Psychology, and he is continually amazed at how often he uses that knowledge.

Since dancing has not always paid all the bills, Randy has also worked as an arts administrator, school bus driver, meeting planner, stage manager, bill collector, real estate assistant, lighting designer, high school principal, wild land firefighter, and emergency medical technician, among others --- all while continuing to dance and choreograph professionally.

As a teaching artist since 1984, Randy has led over 150 professional development workshops in 26 states. He has also designed scores of in-depth, arts-integrated residencies (one to four weeks) for schools of all types and grade levels.

As a founding member of the Río Gallinas Charter School for Ecology and the Arts in Las Vegas, New Mexico, Randy is involved in a unique statewide charter school movement that encourages innovative teaching and learning.

Randy lives with his family near the village of Tecolote, New Mexico, about a hundred yards from the original Santa Fe Trail.
