I am a current Bristol-Based freelance dancer, choreographer, dance teacher as well as artistic director and co-founder of AllouAqui Dance Theatre.
My dance journey started as a little boy, watching my mother boogying around the house, leading me to Balleteatro in Porto, Portugal where I trained in physical theatre for three years. I have a varying range of training from both Portugal and the UK including my first-class Dance BA (Hons) degree from Bath Spa University where I am now an associate lecturer. I also received the Bath Spa Alumni Award in 2017 as one of the top five students at the university.
I have plenty of experience in leading, making and collaborating within the dance world, receiving five star reviews for my dance theatre performances of Milan’s Game in 2019 and Final Test in 2017 - performances that were created by AllouAqui Dance Theatre company, of which I am an artistic director, choreographer and performer.
I also have experience in directing movement and performing within theatre. I have worked across this platform with a variety of artists, which has allowed me to mould my practice, merging the two languages together.
