I have known Desiree Robbins for nearly 3 decades and as an educator she is a teacher's teacher refining and teaching jazz technique and movement to get the maximum result and efficiency in dancers. Proven techniques that have brought out the very best in all whom she works with. As a choreographer she set a production piece on our dancers that was high energy and detail oriented that demand only the very best in each and every dancer. The proof is in the pudding and the number received first overall and special awards from nearly every competitive event. Many of my students have assisted her in classes and have had the opportunity and privilege to work with in her many years as a company director and choreographer and we are all very excited and happy for her latest adventure. As a friend and colleague she gives 200% to everyone she meets and every project. She is dedicated, passionate, loyal and giving of her time and talents. She goes above and beyond and has stood the test of time. She is the roots of a tree that have given strength, energy and love to so many to grow as people and as artists. I am looking forward to continuing to myself and my dancers grow with her for decades to come. *Light, Love, Laughter & Dance, Jayde Howard <3 XO :)See MoreRead Less"
