Robin and Kristina

Robin’s dance genesis was initiated by his parents when at the age of three they enrolled him in a local dance school in Ipswich, a non-metropolitan district and the county town of Suffolk, England. From the very beginning, Robin studied both Ballroom and Latin dance eventually competing in those disciplines at the highest levels. His skills eventually led him to represent England, amassing numerous World Championships, both on the domestic and international level.

In 2010, Robin’s first season of Strictly Come Dancing, Kristina Rihanoff became his Professional Partner. Robin and Kristina have performed solo routines on Strictly Come Dancing and have also taken their partnership off the Strictly dance floor, with them both headlining Burn The Floor in Londons West End in 2013. The Partnership has taken them all over the world, from charity events to Strictly cruise ship events, they have performed in the South African version of Strictly, dancing and teaching large groups at this special event.

Kristina’s career started at the age of 7. She has an impressive dance background, having studied Salsa, Mambo, American styles of Ballroom, Latin, and American Smooth. This extensive knowledge alongside her natural talent and flair for dance saw her become one of the World’s most accomplished performers at the peak of her competitive career.

Since retiring from competition, Kristina has carved a name for herself after appearances on the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Tour in 2007, and it wasn’t long until she was lured to the UK to join the TV phenomenon of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. The UK has grown to love her choreography and well composed routines for both her fellow professionals and learning celebrities. With a diverse range of previous partners on the show, she has managed to stun viewers at home by transforming these contestants into polished performers in the ballroom, thanks to her exceptional teaching abilities and choreography masterpieces.
