About Robert

Robert Poole trained from 1971 to 1978 at the Royal Ballet School in London. He has worked with many international ballet companies and was a solo dancer with : Ballet Rambert in London, Scapino Ballet in Rotterdam, and Ballet Frankfurt under William Forsythe.


In 1993 Robert Poole left Ballet Frankfurt to develop his own style of teaching and realize his own choreographies.

He held workshops in Berlin, Munich, Brussels, London, Iceland, Sweden and Spain.

In 1994 he founded his own company "Moving Words" in Berlin and was distinguished by the Deutsche Platform for the piece "One to Four."


From 1998 to 2003 Robert was ballet director and principal choreographer for "Ballet Linz"in Austria.

Songlines, Stairwell,  U2 need Love, Songs of Innocence and Experience - Blake Rap, John, Goya, Hamlett Buzz and Shiva's Chamber proved very popular with his public and achieved critical acclaim. (U2 need Love voted best new company and video collabaration by Andrea Amort  in Ballet International 2001


Robert has also enjoyed the challenge of works commissioned by industrial companies who wished to be connected with progress, innovation and contempary work.

He made in situ pieces for example at "Polyfeld "Linz,The Paper Factories in Pols, southern Austria and VoestAlpine amongst others.. using his l creativity and imagination to connect contempory dance with industry and to bring it to a new audience.

Since moving to Spain in 2003 he has worked at the Consevatorios de Danza in both Valencia and Alicante,been invited as a guest teacher and choreographer  to Bilbao,Alicante.Leeds(NCDS) and Norway.In the summer he has been developing his rural workshops in the mountains close to Gaudelest his goal being simply to share his knowledge and love of dance and encourage others to break free of their studio engendered limitations..connecting movement with nature  and sharing this beautiful and inspiring area with like minded souls.

N.B for a few years now i have partly due to old knee injuries and age! and partly out of wishing to simply live my life here in spain ceased accepting or applying for teaching gigs wether here or abroard however my "land workshop" project is the one thing I do not wish to give up  -is very close to my heart and it still fills me with pleasure to share this inspirational and special place with others and  I enjoy witnessing  each unique persons response both creatively and socially.
