It got him dancing and ever since he has never stopped, aiming to grow and further improve his dancing to the highest possible skill. Therefore the last few years he has been training in Paris with among others Meech and Icee (both former winners of Just Debout and Summerdance Forever). It is this love for hiphop dance he wishes to share in his classes. They are focused on personal development and helping dancers better their abilities while feeling comfortable in their own dancing. The class is put to music he finds most supporting in hiphop dancing: r&b, soul and of course hip-hop. It makes dancers feel the movement and sense a real vibes while dancing.
