Rob Jenkins is happy to be a part of the Riley Reason to Dance Benefit. He holds a degree in Anthropology from IU, but after college his love of dance drew him to become a ballroom dance instructor which he has now done full time since 1999.
For five of those years, Rob danced in professional ballroom competition with his wife Melissa. He competed in the smooth division, but he is also proficient in all styles of ballroom as well as salsa and argentine tango. He has also been a student of the Alexander Technique for over a decade.
Outside of dance, Rob enjoys reading and gardening, and his great passion is taking care of his recently adopted daughter with his wife. Now, he has a new passion which is doing everything he can to help his partner win this contest!!!
