The artist and talented dancer was sincere from the heart and said this:
-What inspired you to have dance as a profession?
-I wasn’t much of a dancer when I was little, but I remember that on my 10th birthday I saw a video of Michael Jackson’s concert, the next day I started to imitate his steps and at that moment everything changed for me and I have never stopped dancing since then , naturally it became something that I knew I was going to do all my life even as a profession.
-How do you define yourself professionally?
-I define myself as a demanding person both in punctuality and in the work itself, I am a perfectionist but at the same time I like to be able to enjoy the process of whatever I am doing, it is a balance that I learned to carry with time, I always trusted my intuition when it comes to creating a number and I often try to find something new and fresh, something that makes a difference, something that the audience can really feel when they are watching it.
-What type of dance are you most passionate about?
-I don’t have a special one, but locking and salsa is something I don’t do that often, but I really enjoy them every time I dance these styles, I feel like I’m in a constant party.
-Which artist would you like to dance on stage with?
-Some of the artists that I would like to dance on stage are Beyoncé, Rauw Alejandro, Justin Bieber and Chris Brown.
-Your closest dream
-One of my next dreams is to dance with Daddy Yankee at his farewell concert this 2023.
-Short term plans
-I have a personal plan to be an expert dancing salsa as a couple, it is something that always catches my attention and I want to work on it, apart from that I want to continue positioning myself internationally, gaining more experience and soon taking the position of choreographic director for big shows, international tours and important events.
