Robbie has always been interested in how his knowledge and understanding of somatic practices influences his teaching and dance-making. As a teenager, he achieved the level of black belt in the Korean martial arts form of Tang Soo Do/Moo Duck Kwon. Over the course of his lifetime, he has continued to study various martial arts, with a current practice of Qi Gong and Tai Ji Quan.
He has been certified in Pilates since 1998 and has been certified in Yoga since 2010. He has had the opportunity to teach both of these forms on an international and national level, most notably in: Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Bates Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, Ireland, Uruguay, and South Korea. Robbie also had the opportunity to study intermittently with Irene Dowd from 2002 to 2013. He integrates knowledge of this work into his teaching of somatic and dance forms.
