My Story:
Robert Dickerson has been swing dancing since 2001. His first love is Lindy Hop, which lead him to expand his repertoire to include Charleston, Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Blues, and West Coast Swing. Robert's perspective on dance grew out of the Washington D.C. and Florida swing dance communities. Seeking out the best instruction, he has travelled long and far to attend workshops with some of the best Lindy Hop and Balboa dancers: Skye and Frida, Todd and Naomi, Nathalie and Yuval, Mike Faltesek, Nina Gilkenson, Peter Strom, David Rehm and Bobby and Kate. He has participated in many dance exchanges and workshops such as DCLX, SoFLex, BalJam, DC Bal Weekend, and Jamminâ on the James.

From 2005-2006, Robert choreographed the BounceMeBrother dance troupe with his partner at the time, Ashley Bartczak. In addition, he has performed with a swing troupe for a crowd of 50,000 and has won many regional Jack and Jill competitions. Robert's passion for dancing has lead him to explore other forms of expression such as salsa, tango, capoeira, popping and locking, and breakdancing. When he's not dancing, he is pondering mathematical and scientific curiosities such as does P=NP?
