He started with ballet when he was young, which was expanded in his teens with modern, show and jazz. In 2015 he did the 5 o’clock Peer Performance at the AHK for two years, and in 2017 he started the Dance Teacher course. He has already gained a lot of experience in various internships, including at The ReDiscover Me Foundation.
