How did you get into dancing?
I used to play football at a fairly high level, one day I decided to quit. Shortly after, in 2009/2010 I travelled around for six months in South America and naturally came across Salsa/Bachata/Merengue etc which later on while back in Sweden led me to Kizomba and Semba. It was an instant and perfect match also substitute for my football cravings.
What projects are you currently working on?
Continuing building up the dance scene in Malmö, Sweden. We have a great team, all working together with regular classes, weekly socials, and parties. Expanding our dance school and also gearing up for the 2nd Edition of Vamolá Dance Festival.
What’s been the most memorable moment of your journey as a dancer so far?
Difficult to select one, but the recent trip to Angola made me realize the dots and the connecting lines between them throughout my journey as a dancer.
What advice would you give to up & coming dancers looking at you for inspiration?
I would divide my advice in three parts:
a) Learn and master the basic not only technically but also emotionally and don’t be in a hurry to reach for fame, and always be humble and open to continue learning.
b) Have a goal to always work towards to reach.
c) Give back to the community that have fostered you, be a role model and inspiration to others.
What can we expect from you for the rest of 2018?
New show together with Dani, and a complete makeover of our 2nd festival, 7th edition of Copenhagen Kizomba Festival for 2019
