Before joining the Eunice Marais School of Dance (EMSD) at the age of 19 post my Matric, I was a self taught dancer with no previous dance experience. I taught myself how to dance by watching Youtube videos. I love to dance and love sharing my dancing with people.
I am currently dancing at Eunice Marais School of Dance (EMSD) in Centurion and High Performance Dance Education (HPDE) in Sunninghill, trained by Eunice Marias & Debbie Rakusin. I'm now 22 years and in the space of 3 years below are my achievements:
- Current SA O/17 Solo Male Modern Dance Champion
- Current SA O/17 Duo Modern Dance Champion
- Multiple Solo Male Modern Dance Medalist
- Multiple Solo Street Dance Show Medallist
- Multiple Duos Modern Dance Medalist
- Dancer Nedbank Cup Final 2023
- Dancer Miss SA South Africa 2023 Finals
I have now been selected to represent South Africa at the 2023 IDO Performing Arts World Championships in Belguim, De Panne in December 2023.
The selection also means I am in line to receive my National South African Colours (Protea Colours) in Dance Sport. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for me and the biggest acculate any sportman can receive.
In order to be able to attend these world championships as a dancer and also be awarded the opportunity to dance and represent my country on a world stage at the Performing Arts World Championship in Belgium. Please could you help me achieve my dance goal for 2023. The funds raised will be used for the following:
- Air Tickets
- Train Tickets
- Dance Costumes
- Competition entry fees
- Any other cost that may come up
Thank you for your help.
