Learn to Strictly

Robin’s impressive career was initiated by his parents when, at the age of three, they enrolled him in a local dance school in Ipswich. From the very beginning, Robin studied both Ballroom and Latin dance, eventually competing in those disciplines at the highest possible levels.
His skills eventually led him to represent England, amassing numerous championships, both on the domestic and international level.
In 2001, Robin was cast in the ground breaking and critically acclaimed dance show ‘Burn the Floor’. A show in which he was to tour the world with for the next ten years, culminating with a nine month run on Broadway.
After such success, it was inevitable that Robin would be asked to join the cast of the BBC TV’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. Over the next five years Robin arguably became one of the most recognisable faces on the show, being partnered with Patsy
Kensit, Anita Dobson, Deborah Meaden, and Lisa Riley. And danced alongside stars such as Neil Diamond, Katherine Jenkins, Christina Perri, Rod Stewart, and Alice Cooper, just to name a few!
This was all followed by Robin headlining UK tours in shows such as ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’, ‘Dance to the Music’, 5 tours of ‘Strictly Come Dancing LIVE’, and his own creations ‘Keep Dancing’ and his ‘Farewell tour’
Undoubtedly one of Robin’s personal highlights was to be asked to return to ‘Burn the Floor’, this time headlining the show and fulfilling a childhood dream of seeing his name in lights in London’s glittering West End. Robin is the ONLY person to have featured on Broadway, the West End AND ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ all in the same year
