Dancer and choreographer who has danced for and toured with some of the most high-profile celebrities in the world. He became first runner-up in the 2008 season of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance.
He started training as a hairdresser and an electrical engineer but didn't finish either of them. He then began dancing when he was 17 years old and lived in Rotterdam. A year later he was accepted to the Rotterdam Dance Academy. In 2008 he tried out for So You Think You Can Dance on Fox, which became his big break.
In May 2009 he was hand-picked by Michael Jackson to become one of the 12 principal dancers on his This Is It tour, which then sadly failed to happen because of the pop legend's tragic death.
He was born in Roermond but moved to Rotterdam at the age of six. After his stint on So You Think You Can Dance, he was approved for a work visa in the United States and moved to Los Angeles in 2009.
He gained further prominence in January 2014 when he began dating pop superstar Madonna.
