Professional dancer Robin Windsor dies aged 44

Professional dancer Robin Windsor has died at the age of 44.

He gained recognition from his performances on the popular television show Strictly Come Dancing between 2010-2015. His celebrity partners included Anita Dobson, Lisa Riley, and Deborah Meaden.

Windsor’s death was announced on the official Facebook page of Burn The Floor – a dance company he co-founded in 1997.

“The Burn the Floor family has lost one of its founding members, Robin “Bobby” Windsor – who has tragically passed away.

“A BTF journeyman he danced with us for twenty years – including Broadway, The West End and all our crazy adventures around the world.

“His talent, attitude, energy and personality helped create the Burn the Floor stage reputation. He leaves a void in our hearts that will never be filled, yet our wonderful memories will stay forever.”

Windsor, born in Suffolk in 1979, developed a love for dancing early on and started participating in dance competitions throughout the UK. At 15, he moved to London to pursue his passion.

By the age of 22, he landed a role in a major international dance show, embarking on a nine-year journey that took him to various countries around the globe. He frequently performed on Broadway and in the West End.

Prior to his stint on Strictly Come Dancing, he performed on its Australian counterpart. He was also the co-choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance in Australia.

He was forced to leave Strictly Come Dancing in 2014 due to a slipped disc which left him paralysed for four days. However he did compete in the Christmas Special that year and again in 2015.

His agent, Sisco Entertainment, said on social media:

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the tragic passing of our beloved friend, Robin Windsor. Beyond his impeccable dancing, Robin’s vibrant spirit lit up the room, infusing rehearsals and performances with infectious energy and warmth.”

Windsor had most recently appeared in the stage show Come What May, a tribute to Moulin Rouge.
