Chloe Robinson is a passionate performer, teacher and coach with 14 years of street latin experience. She moved to Europe in 2016 to train full time with some of the biggest names in the industry, Jhesus Aponte, Adolfo Indacochea, Tania Cannarsa & Fernando Sosa to name a few. In that time she has been teaching and performing at festivals across Europe. She most recently took out first place at the International Professional Womens Salsa Solo in Brisbane and performed again with the world renowned Jhesus Aponte. Now she is excited to be coming home to share her knowledge and skills with us.
Chloe began dancing Salsa at 15 and quickly became a leader and teacher to younger students in after school classes. In these early years she was selected to represent Nelson and New Zealand at various national and Australian events both in teams and as a solo dancer. Since moving to Wellington in 2009 she began training and performing with the performance team Salsacalafragalistic founded by Jacob Rosevear and teaching for the well known local school, Salsa Magic – Latin Dance School.
In 2012 she co-created the performance team The Clave Collective with Jacob Rosevear which grew to more than 30 members. The team forged a proud reputation of the highest standards on and off the dance floor. Its members went on to perform and compete around the world winning numerous Salsa and other Latin dance titles. As Chloe’s passion for Salsa and street Latin dance grew, so did her hunger for knowledge and dance training.
She has proudly worked with many Latin international artists in training and choreography including Serena Cuevas (USA), Elli Torres & Carlos Galliano (AUS), Gaby Equiz (MEX), Serigo Jasso (MEX) Mariano Nerris (USA), Sharon Parkir (AUS) and Greydis Montero Liranza (CUBA & NZ). After performing at the Los Angeles Latin Festival in 2016 she moved to Italy to study Salsa and other Latin styles full time with professionals including Fernando Sosa, Tatiana Bogurno, Adolfo Indacochea, Tania Canarsa and Jhesus Aponte among others. Chloe is currently residing in Hamburg Germany but continues to train as a solo dancer for competition and performance working closely with Jhesus Aponte. She continues to work with Salsa Magic in Wellington choreographing routines and working with the teaching team over video.
