How to Swing Dance with Robert Royston

Learn about Robert Royston, one of Howcast's dance experts, in this video.


Hi. My name is Robert Royston. I've dance in film, on Broadway and in television. I do about 27 different styles of dance. But the style of dance that launched my career was swing dancing. In 1985 when I was just a teenager and some lady asked me if I knew how to swing dance. And I said no. And she taught me. And now I have a career. I went on to competitive swing dancing where I won the U.S. Open Swing Dance Championship four years in a row. I'm currently a member of the Living Legends of Dance Society, the California State Swing Dance Hall of Fame and the World Swing Dance Council Hall of Fame. My wife, Nicola, and I still compete all over the world. We are many time NASDE Showcase swing champions, U.S. Grand National Cabaret champions and U.S. National Cabaret Champions. We love what we do. We love to swing dance. We hope you'll love it, too. You can find me at Check me out on our Facebook fan page as well at Robert and Nicola Royston on Facebook and I'll see you on the dance floor.
