Perspective & Philosophy

Riley is very passionate about his body of work. His bold persona not only invigorates students to work to their maximum, but exposes their purest abilities.

Under his craftsmanship, dancers are more than encouraged to detour from normality, allowing them to both discover and accept their own divergence in order to create truly original works of art suited to each dancer.

Each and every choreographic session is treated with utmost care as creating new work also includes the refining of one's technical practice. This guarantee takes great patience and precision as a stronger foundation equals stronger results. Through this theory, his ability to extract the best in each dancer, and his valiant outlooks, Riley has developed his very own unique style of contemporary dance which is leading to an ever-growing and respected reputation, both personally and professionally.

Biography

Originating from Bundaberg, Riley commenced his full-time studies at the Australian Dance Performance Institute in 2009 before successfully auditioning for the New Zealand School of Dance in 2010 where he majored in contemporary dance.

During his time in Wellington, Riley performed works by Rafael Bonachela, Garry Stewart and Antony Hamilton as part of the School’s annual Graduation Seasons and received guest tutorage from industry professionals such as Richard Cilli, Craig Bary, Sarah Foster-Sproull and Lina Limosani, whom he worked with professionally in 2014.

Since graduating in 2013, Riley now embarks on his choreographic pursuit by continuously aspiring to develop, nurture and shape his own unique form of movement through his coaching and choreographic endeavours.

In 2015, he emphasised this desire by forming Riley Baldwin Youth Projects, before relocating to Brisbane to intensify it. In 2018, RB Corp. Instruction surfaced as a way to further fortify his devotion to the craft and creation of contemporary dance and to encourage the importance of innovation through upcoming generations. In 2019, RBCI will debut its first original work in Brisbane, entitled “The Hive”.

Riley currently resides at Classical Coaching Australia while continuing to freelance on a very selective basis. He has also been invited to coach at numerous workshops and intensives, and is entrusted to coach students for the Prix de Lausanne — the world's most prestigious international ballet competition held annually in Switzerland.
