TIMETABLES
 

During my career as a professional dancer I have travelled extensively dancing in many countries all over the world and appeared on television on many occasions working with many famous celebrities such as Ginger Rogers. However the highlight of my career finally came in Paris at the Moulin Rouge, where I was chosen to dance the famous Can-Can as a solo artist.
