He always wanted to dance and make it a career but his parents never gave him the chance to.


On this section, he shared his dance challenges and how he overcame them

In 2009, I took dance professionally but the discouragement and threats from family keeps growing,

They keep saying can dance put food on the table.

But I scaled through with the help of my sister and elder brother who usually cover up for me when I sneak out for rehearsals.

It was a big fight, that I was nearly disowned by my dad because I kept on Dancing.

But I pushed and scaled through when my family start seeing the change in me and the passion that was just too different.

I started working and had more chance to Dance and explore more with my dance crew IHI Dance Crew R/S

He shared what motivated him to Dance and Who his Role Model is!

What motivates me to dance is myself when I was a kid.

So I said to myself  “All these struggles are meant to cause change in the dance industry”  So I won’t give up till God’s plan for me in the Dance Industry is fulfilled.

But note: my major motivation is Christ.

Cause He gave me the Gift and called me to be a Dancer.
