Let’s take you back to where it all started…

At the age of 13 I moved to the Netherlands. At that time soccer was my biggest passion. Though after a while I discovered that I also have another passion. I started watching YouTube videos of Michael Jackson, as well as other inspiring dancers, and I got so inspired by their dance moves, that I decided to start dancing. I began dancing secretly in my room, on abandoned places or at times that I was hanging out with friends. I had to learn it myself and I practiced over and over again until I got it right. I continued teaching myself new moves. It was a nice feeling and I enjoyed doing this. From then on another passion began to grow inside of me. The passion I never knew I had.

Popping

In the beginning dancing was just a hobby. I wasn’t aware of the different dance styles of Hip-Hop so I did a lot of research. I took some different dance classes, workshops and master classes, because the more I knew about it, the better I would be. I got fascinated by Popping and to become a better popper I practiced everyday for hours. I loved this dance style and everything about it. Whenever I danced, I danced from my heart and strove to do my best. After a while I started performing on schools, events and other occasions. I enjoyed doing this and I realized that this was what I love doing the most. From that moment on, I knew I would never stop dancing.

Culture vs passion

I grew up in a culture where dancing as a profession isn’t accepted. By taking steps towards a career in dance I knew it wouldn’t be an easy journey for me. Though I accepted this and I decided to follow my dreams. I am now proud to say that dancing forms a big part of my life and by following my heart and dreams I am where I want to be, on my own way.

                        ”Dreams make us who we will become.”

Big breakthrough

In 2013 I participated for a popular TV show called Holland’s got talent. Entering the competition as a shy guy I never expected to reach the semi-final. Since Hollands got talent I inspired a lot of people by telling my story through dance. Till the day of today I appreciate having this beautiful experience. From then on I started continuing performing on showcases and battles. Now I give workshops, Popping and Hiphop dance classes to students of all ages and experience levels. Next to being a performer and entertainer I enjoy teaching others and sharing my passion with them. When it comes to teaching I always try to take the best out of my students. I often ask my students: “Do you want to be the person who reminds someone of someone else? Or do you want to be the person who’s thought of first?”.

  • "When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful"

“By following my heart and dreams I am where I want to be, on my own way..”

Dream it, Believe it, Archieve it

I know that I have grown since the start of this journey and that I’m only going to learn and grow even more. Hard work and dedication always win out in the end, because I do believe in myself, I will never give up and I will work hard until my dreams become reality. I go out into the world and build my own creative opportunities. I truly believe that I have the power to create my own career. This journey has not ended and I can’t wait to show more and do more of what I love.
