IMG_2387   Holly Brown | Executive Director | Instructor

Holly has been dancing for 23 years at various places in Middle Tennessee. She has been teaching dance for 15 years as an instructor, choreographer, and director at multiple studios and  arts academies. Holly has trained and performed with the Nashville Ballet and has a Bachelors Degree from Austin Peay State University in Studio Art with a Minor in Dance. Her creative art credits include graphic design for Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Fish Lipz Restaurant, and props for stage productions such as CATS and many more freelance projects.

Holly realized the need for more accessible arts education in rural communities and thus, The Arts Alliance was born. “Arts education should be accessible by EVERYONE who has a passion for it regardless of age, skill, or financial status.”

Holly not only has a passion for the arts, but also for rescuing animals. She and her husband, Alan, volunteer and foster for Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue. Holly and Alan live in Clarksville with their four rescued dogs Mocha, Strider, Jinger, and Zeus, additional foster dogs from Proverbs, as well as four parrots, Cherry, Rio, Sol, and Edgar.

“Praise His name with dancing; make music to Him with tambourine and harp.”

Psalm 149:3
