* * * * * 
I am extreemly proud and honored to have been one of the eight finalists chosen for Best West Coast Swing Instructor in the country.  Thanks to all who voted for me. 
 * * * * *     

Robin has been dancing, teaching and competing in dance as well as judging nationally and regionally for over 25 years.  For the past 12 years he has concentrated exclusively on West Coast Swing, studying with only the very best in the business.


Among his many accomplishments are numerous 1st Place titles and many top 5 placements at events all across the  nation  including a 3rd place finish at the prestigious US Open Swing Dance Championships in 2003. He currently competes at the Invitational/Champions Level. 
Robin is certified under Michael Kiehm's IPDIA at the Instructor/Examiner level (Highest Level) and  affiliates himself with Skippy Blair's GSDTA when ever possible.  Never satisfied that what he already knows is enough, he works tirelessly to keep up with current trends and techniques in the global west coast swing community.  He has won more top teacher awards than can be noted.


With a diverse professional background in music, dance and martial arts Robin has a unique understanding of body movement and how it relates to music and he takes great pride in his ability to improve the overall level of West Coast Swing where ever his travels take him.


As a serious teacher for serious students Robin teaches full time and would love to share his vast knowledge of and passion for west coast swing with you.

The Level One Instructional DVD with Robin and Shari is now available and can be purchased at Monday night class or by contacting Robin.
