What can I say about this God of the dancing world? He is not only one of the most beautiful things to watch, but can take your breath away with one look.
His graceful and smouldering movements reek sex–but his mastery of technical expertise keeps you coming back for more.

Don’t have one. I like different things in different dancers.

I compete all the time and sometimes people invite me and my partner for shows.

In 10 years I’d like to become a well respected teacher and dancer as well. I’d like to educate my students to the best of my ability and help them become the best dancers they can possibly be. I want to be able to look back and know that all my hard work wasnâ€™t taken for granted and have no regrets about the decisions I’ve made.
What has been your most memorable dance experience?
Getting into the final of Miami Open 4 years ago. It was my first big competition with lots of good couples.
