Robyn started out as a competitive gymnast at age 5 in Christchurch. During this time she dabbled in ballet but ultimately decided that she needed to devote her time to gymnastics. She competed both nationally and overseas. She is also a qualified NZGA (New Zealand Gymnastics Association) judge and coach. After gymnastics, Robyn found that coaching competitive and recreational gymnasts rewarding, but missed the physical aspect of training and competing. Luckily, she went to school with Tara and Tara convinced her to give dancing a go. Robyn has danced both competitively and for pleasure since 2001. She has sat Jazz and Ballet exams passing both with distinction. In 2005 she run her local dance school while her teacher was on maternity leave.In January 2017 Robyn traveled to Brisbane with Tara to train and qualify as a certified Acrobatic Arts teacher and is now enjoying working with TM Dance World Students of all ages training in Acrobatic classes along with choreographing solos and troupes specializing in broadway and musical theater. Robyn will also spend her 2018 year as a teacher at Darfield High School.
