Wade Robson

Updated on October 6, 2013

Wade J. Robson

Wade Robson is 30 years old.

At the age of 3 Wade was memorizing the dance steps of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. At 5 Wade was dancing in competitions and performing in front of large crowds with Michael Jackson himself.  By the time he was 9 he had appeared in three of Michael Jackson's videos: "Black or White," "Jam" and "Heal the World."

More performances and television spots were followed by music writing & production, acting, choreography and becoming a dance teacher. When he turned 16 he was requested to choreograph for Britney Spears. He directed her stage show, remixed the music, directed the video segments and designed the sets. When he was 21 he got his own show on MTV, "The Wade Robson Project", and has most recently been a judge and choreographer for the FOX show So You Think You Can Dance.

He certainly is one amazing person.

      @shellywebstere: I can't find him on either website. Some more searching I found that he had to back out of the show (I think you are right about Immortal) so it looks like he wasn't officially a part of either. I just deleted that from my page. Thanks.

      Wade Robson is brilliant! I first became aware of him on "So You Think You Can Dance", and he's been one of my favorite choreographers on that show. I didn't realize he's so young -- he's two years older than my oldest son. Such talent!
