Why did you become a dancer?
I started dancing by following the steps of my older sister, joining her classes after school. Being the only boy in the ballet school was pretty cool! When I was 11 years old I was told that I had the ability to take it to the next level and I left home to go to Paris. Ballet was great fun and the pleasure of dancing took over everything. With the support of my parents and sister, I became a dancer.
