This natural talent on the pole is excited to be entered into the World Pole Sport & Fitness Championships with just months of preparation on a stainless steel pole.

‘My first contact with the public was 9 years old with ballet presentations. I started learning capoeira when I was 15 years old, after learning the break dance which I have been practicing since 8 years old. I had my first professional opportunity in a great artistic project (Circus Roda) the best and most well structured circus in Brazil.
In this project I learned numbers of acrobatics, aerial cradle, aerial straps, trapeze, and cube manipulation.
In this period I met my trainer Angel Andricain one of the best coaches of Brazil, he is from Cuba and it was he who introduced me and taught me basic techniques of Chinese pole. During this time I went through many experiences.
Desputas and capoeira events in various states of Brazil
Break dance battles various states of Brazil
Three years of contract and two different shows (STAPAFURDYO) and (OCEANO) with Circus Roda One and half year contract with TUI FUNCTION acrobat shows in hotels, Egypt and Turkey
At the moment I live in Germany and work with gala events and workshops.
