biography

My elder sister practiced the ballet dance in Lisbon, my home town ; she tempted me to dance.
At 13, I thus entered the Lisbon academy where I studied during 5 years the ballet and contemporary dance.
At  18, I chose to leave my country to perfect my formation in the Pôle National Supérieur de Danse de Cannes Rosella Hightower. I stayed there only 3 months because I quickly integrated the BNMNEXT, the junior company of the National Ballet of Marseille, managed by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten.
There, throughout the year on 2016, I improved by participating in several plays of the NEXT repertory (Proximo, Crisi) and of the BNM repertory (Extremalism and Bolero) beside the professional dancers of the company.
In January 2017, Pieter and Emio allowed me to sign my first professional contract for the National Ballet of Marseille.

When i dance Extremism, i think that it’s all about your own individuality combined with group awareness, and this possibility of still being able to be yourself and also to be more than you among 30 people on stage is really special. We are guided throw a journey with an uncommon logic, that allows us to manifest.
