 – Have you ever been to Budapest, to teach or even on a private trip?
– I visited Budapest for the first time in 2006 for a ballet and contemporary summer camp. Organized by my first ballet teacher László Mészáros.
– How do you prepare for your workshop which will be held for the students of the Hungarian Dance Academy and for dancers coming from outside?
– I prepare by deciding the music and what I would like to share in the class. But I mostly improvise and go with the flow of the students at the spot.
– Where is your base now? What place does your dance teaching have in your professional life?
– I’m based in London. I rarely teach as my focus is being a dancer and choreographer at the moment. But this year I’ll also be teaching in Taiwan and Japan.

– How did you get to know the vogue style and how long have you been doing it?
– I got to know it on one of my first trips to New York in 2007. Been doing since then.
– Who are you waiting for attending your course in Budapest?
– Anyone of any age, gender and experience who has a willing to learn the culture and style.
