As a young dancer and then teacher I was so blessed to have Desiree (and Doug) to inspire me. When I think of Desiree I remember positive energy and a smile that lit up every room as she danced and taught - she was so funny too! I was so excited a few years back when she came to Canada and my dancers had the chance to take her classes and then my husband and I had the opportunity to chat with her that weekend. Heaven is having an amazing dance party now with Doug and Desiree there. Forever grateful to have known Des!!

In 1993, I thought I was dancing in her class, truth was Desiree danced into my life and I was forever changed for the better! Every year when a “new dance season” begins, I think WWDRD -what would Desiree Robbins do....and then I build the curriculum for the “babies”—-because as she taught me, they can and they will if you pour into them.....oh how she will be missed, and I’m so thankful for all she taught me....her legacy dances on. I remember the exact convention and location when I said “you look amazing, what are you doing?” Her reply...”I’m in love and so happy” my deepest condolences, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

I met my wife when she was only 12 years old. We were childhood friends for many years before we had a romantic relationship. In fact it would be another 15 years before we would meet up again. I had been through my share of relationships, she’d been through hers. We both were established in our perspective careers and we’re looking for the next chapter of our lives. She came into my life on cue like a movie.
Now here’s the interesting part, we hadn’t spoken in many years when she happened to call, out of a blue, on Easter of 1998. Turned out we only lived about a mile away from each other the whole time. I knew she was going be my wife that first weekend we spent together. Three years later we were married.
The next 20 years we would live a happy and healthy marriage. Though like all married couples we had our challenges, but our relationship was rooted in friendship first and that never left us.
23 years later, on another Easter weekend, she passed away. I was with her the entire time, holding her hand, telling her I loved her and to visit me sometime. I love you my dear wife, and hope to see you again someday.

Desiree came into my dance studio called The Dance Shoppe for some 15+ years. She was a breath of fresh air.....the dancers loved her energy, her positive and constructive teaching style and her ability to put a smile on everyone’s face. She was an amazing choreographer and choreographed many winning competition numbers for The Dance Shoppe over the years. She was teaching at my studio on 9/11, when the World Trade Center happened. She couldn’t get a flight home so she spent almost a week at my business manager’s house. It was a difficult time. All she wanted was to be with Michael. All the laughs, all the talk about our industry and how close we had become still echo in my mind to this day. RIP Desiree....may you dance with the angels forever and ever.
