Q&A

WHAT BALLET OR ROLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO DANCE BUT HAVEN'T YET?

I would love to dance as the prince in The Sleeping Beauty. I think it's one of the greatest and most challenging roles a male dancer can aspire to perform.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

Dancing Helgi Tomasson's Handel pas de deux in Hamburg with Natasha Sheehan as a trainee.

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING I ENJOY...

Playing piano, reading excessive amounts, and playing video games.
