I studied dance at the Franchetti Academy, at the Opéra de Paris dance school, then at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris (CNR), winning the gold medal there in 1997. In 1998, I moved to the Rudra Béjart school in Lausanne and danced le Sacre du printemps and Bolero with the Bejart Ballet Lausanne. In 2000 I joined the Italian company Aterballetto run by Mauro Bigonzetti and Cristina Bozzolini. I spent the next nine years performing the creations of Bigonzetti, Naharin, Galili and Abbondanza in particular. I was hired at the Ballet National de Marseille in 2009 and went on to dance in pieces by Thierry Malandain, Emanuel Gat, Olivier Dubois and William Forsythe. In 2013, for the European Capital of Culture in Marseille, I created Triple Axel with the Marseille-based choreographer Michel Kelemenis, a piece for young audiences that was performed at the Théâtre La Criée and Klap - maison pour la Danse.
