Ballet Conservatory & Ballet 4/5
It was in Yvonne Lakier(S.W.R.B), Robyns mother’s studio, that she began training at the age of 3. She attended the National School of The Arts training in both the R.A.D. (Solo Seal) and Cecchetti methods. Robyn continued her training at The Royal Ballet School in London, before being asked to join Sadlers Wells Royal Ballet Company after just 3 months. Robyn also danced with P.A.C.T. and N.A.P.A.C. companies in South Africa.
Robyn has worked with renowned teachers and choreographers and performed numerous leading roles, including Giselle, Coppelia, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote and Swan Lake. Robyn was the lead dancer in several Balanchine ballets, including: Four Temperaments, Apollo, Sonantine and Tchaikowsky Pas De Deux . Ballets written for her include Killar’s ‘Miraculous Mandarine’ and ‘Baccus and Ariandne’, and Nierewicz’s ‘Shostakovich Pas De Deux’. A ballet ‘Segel-Suite’ was written and performed in Germany as a dedication to her work.
Robyn’s professional performing career ended abruptly following severe injuries sustained in a car accident. Robyn guest teaches ballet at schools throughout U.S.A.
Perfect technique and training are an integral part of any dancer’s success. An ability to tap into the ‘soul’ and bring out each person’s unique gifts, are skills that I am impassioned to share.
