Rob is an ex-martial artist teacher and competitor of many years who was looking for an activity that was more gentle after many sports injuries. Rob found dance with his wife in 2008 and never looked back.
After Swing, Jitterbug, Lindy Hop, Foxtrot, Country Two Step, Waltz, and Samba lessons, Rob began teaching Swing, but found Tango shortly after. Its music, freedom, and class intrigued Rob, and it quickly became his primary study in dance for years. Any given week you can find Rob sharing his enthusiasm for tango at local tango practices, classes, working with beginners, and attending/DJ-ing social dances.
Rob regularly attends Tango festivals and events, as near as Missoula, and as far as Budapest. He has taken private lessons from many of the best teachers available at these events to further his understanding of the dance.
