Up Close With Lindsey Robert

Ashley: How long have you been at FSD?

Lindsey: I’ve been here in two different waves. I started working here when FSD first opened in 2005 and worked here until around 2008. Then I officially returned for the Spring Semester in 2013. In total, I’ve been around a while!

A: What are you most excited about this year?

L: This is such a fun season for me. I am becoming a mother soon!

A: What is your favorite style of dance?

L: I have a few: Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary.

A: Describe a day in the life of Lindsey Robert.

L: I am no longer dancing personally, so for this season during times I’m not teaching or preparing for my classes (such as studying the curriculum, picking music, planning out recital details, etc.), I am keeping up with things around the house, cooking, meal-planning, working out, and preparing for my baby’s arrival in a few weeks. At the end of the day, I always wind down by spending time with my husband.

A: What is your favorite food?

L: Indian food! Bombay Bistro in Cool Springs is my favorite place. (Check it out!)

A: What is your favorite thing about teaching?

L: I love seeing the students excited to learn. I love it when they grasp a new concept, and when they get excited when they discover they can do something they didn’t know they were capable of doing.

A: Outside of being an Instructor, how do you like to spend your time?

L: I keep myself pretty busy during the day. I love reading and learning, working out, watching movies during down time, making jewelry, organizing, and spending time with friends and family. When the weather is nice, you’ll find me outdoors somewhere.

A: What is your favorite trip you’ve been on?

L: I’ve been to Israel twice, an incredible experience for which I’m forever grateful.

A: Tell me about your family.

L: I’m married to my best friend, John, who is smart, kind, and hilarious. We are so thrilled to soon be meeting our little one. We also have a dog, Danny, who is a sweet, goofy, and happy 12 pound poodle. He keep us entertained with his antics.
