Robin began her dance training at the age of five, with her focus being Classical Ballet. She studied under the direction of Lucille Hood at the Rockville School of Ballet in Rockville, Maryland. As a teen she was awarded scholarships and furthered her studies in New York at The Robert Joffrey , American Ballet Theatre and in Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Ballet. As a dancer, and later, a teacher in training, she has been privileged to participate in the classes of many remarkable teachers such as Benjamin Harkarvy, Melissa Hayden and Meredith Baylis. These classes included artistic greats such as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Leslie Browne.
In 1980 Robin stepped off the dance floor and married. Next came two beautiful daughters and a career in teaching. Robin shares her creativity, love, and knowledge of the discipline of dance with the youth of today, and is passionate about encouraging each and every student to discover their unique individual gifts, nurture them, and share them with the world. Robin is celebrating her 55th year, 26 of which she has shared with the Dance Unlimited family, two new sons, Aaron and Patrick, her beautiful grandson Zayden and her newest “Tiny Dancer,” granddaughter Avalon.
