Did Wade Robson Have a Dancing Career in Hollywood?
Robson built a highly successful career as a dancer and choreographer in Hollywood, from creating and hosting MTV's The Wade Robson Project (a talent search for hip-hop dancers), to starting a line of dance shoes, and appearing in the 2004 film You Got Served. In 2007 he shifted into choreographing for reality TV, working on the American Idols LIVE! Tour and the second and third seasons of So You Think You Can Dance (he won two Primetime Emmy Awards for outstanding choreography for the latter series).
On top of traditional dancing, he tried his hand at film and music. He co-wrote the hit singles "Pop", "Gone," and "See Right Through You," for *NSYNC's final album, Celebrity, with Justin Timberlake. He also co-wrote Britney Spears' "What It's Like to Be Me." In 2011 he even choreographed the animated family film Happy Feet Two.
2011 was also around the time when Robson began dropping out of projects, leading to a five-year hiatus from the industry as he worked through mental breakdowns that were a result of his alleged trauma. He also claims he was dealing with visions of his infant son, who was born in 2010, suffering the same abuse he allegedly did with Jackson, and entered into therapy.
