Robert Gibson owner of Puttin' On The Ritz


Hi and Welcome, I am Bob, the proud owner of Puttin' On The Ritz Dance Studio. I have over 45 years of experience as a Ballroom and Latin American dance teacher.


I am a former 10 dance champion (many moons ago) and I have choreographed for many performances and TV shows including coronation street. My favourite memories include appearing on the original Come Dancing with the Bob Dale Latin Formation Team.

I owned my first Ballroom dance studio in 1977, and have had a wonderful life of dancing since the age of four years old. I have always trained my own dance teachers, some of which have gone on to own their own dance studios all over the world including winning the Carl Alan Award.

Still to this day my passion for dance is long lasting. I love nothing more than watching my dancers become a family and progress from being a beginner to wherever they want their dancing to take them.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
