  2018 UPDATE

Early in Robert's career as a principal dancer, he was forced to stop dancing due to a physical impairment. Dame Ninette de Valois, leader and founder of the Royal Ballet, where he had spent his formative years, sent him to Tehran at the invitation of the Shah, to bring the National Ballet of Iran up to international standards.
A three year contract became an eleven year sojourn, as he discovered an ancient culture striving for modernity. His life and outlook on dance were changed forever.
