About Us

Silhouette Dance Club based in the heart of Chepstow, Monmouthshire is a well-established dance organisation – lead by Robert Barley, Principal Instructor.

My own relationship with dancing is a long and exciting one. I’ve had a life in dancing since I was 9 years of age – I was a competitor of the highest level.

- 13 Times Welsh Amateur Champion
– United Kingdom & Star Amateur Champion
– Member of both Welsh & British Competing Dance Teams
– Competitor at World Amateur & Professional Level

I have enjoyed success around Europe and beyond; with victories in Belgium, Holland, Poland, Former DDR, Hong Kong, Italy, Former Yugoslavia & China.

As the Principal Instructor at Silhouette Dance Club I work on a personal-level alongside a small team of dedicated staff to deliver a wide-variety of style classes and workshops to different types of people.

My Manageress Fliss Salter is a graduate of the Silhouette Dance Club having been with us since the age of 4. Her vast experience and depth of personal interest ensures she is a well-equipped instructor for both children and adults alike, across different levels and styles. My teaching assistants Donna Hamer, Jo Smith & student teacher Jasmine Maher work in the Children’s Dance Clubs. Their personal connection with dancing is evident in their delivery and their own teaching techniques have produced excellent results.

Alongside my staff I would offer you a warm welcome to join us at Silhouette Dance Club. Our cliental involves such a great range of people – from those in both amateur and professional competition, many who have spent time away from the floor, to those who are looking to get started for the very first time.
