Born in Brisbane, Australia, Wade became a professional dancer at age five. Wade and his family then moved to America when he was nine, and before he turned 10, he had danced and acted in Michael Jackson videos, multiple commercials, films and TV shows.
When Wade was 16, his work caught the eye of Britney Spears. Before he knew it, he was asked to do choreography for her 1999 world tour. After experiencing his talent first-hand, Britney invited him to not only choreograph but to write, direct, remix the music, direct the video segments and co-design the sets for her award show performances and world tours including the acclaimed A Dream within a Dream HBO special. This led to the same job description with *NSYNC, which included their PopOdyssey World Tour. He also choreographed Britney’s famous Pepsi Commercials, her sultry Slave music video and *NSYNC’s Pop music video. Wade’s outstanding work ethic and eagle’s eye to detail presented him with opportunities that made apparent his arrival to the top of his class.
Wade co-wrote and produced What It’s Like To Be Me from the multi-platinum Britney album and four songs from *NSYNC’s multi-platinum Celebrity album, including the Grammy nominated single, Gone. This gained him an unprecedented administration deal with The Universal Music Group. Since then he has gone on to write and produce music for such recording artists such Justin Guarini, Dream, The Backstreet Boys, James Ingram and Carly Simon. Wade also recently released an album of his dance music entitled Wade Robson’s Project-Dance Beats, Vol. 1.
Wade won an Emmy in 2007 for a piece he choreographed for FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance entitled Ramalama. Wade choreographed and starred in a special performance for Dancing with the Stars in 2007, which turned out to be one of the season’s highest rated episodes. Wade and his wife Amanda are currently developed an independent dance feature film, which he directed and choreographed. Wade choreographed Chris Angel’s Cirque du Soleil show, which opened at the Las Vegas Luxor in 2008. Wade is excited about his continual personal and creative growth and is passionate about bringing his knowledge of music, choreography, storytelling, direction and life perspective to stage, commercial, music video and film.
