Through these significant achievements, the ballet world became aware of me and opened the door to the international ballet competition “Prix de Lausanne” in 1992. As the winner of the “Prix de Lausanne” I received a scholarship which ultimately led me to the famous ‘Royal Ballet School’ in London.
In 1994 my professional ballet career began as a “soloist” of the “Ballet Zürich“, based at Zurich Opera House. From 1996 further stages followed, each as a “soloist” at the “Oper Köln“, the “Staatstheater Saarbrücken” and the “Komische Oper Berlin“. In 1998 I was selected as one of four “soloists”, all former winners of the “Prix de Lausanne“, for the opening gala of the “Nagano Olympic Games“.
Since 2001 I have been part of the ballet ensemble “Theater Basel” as “principal dancer” with success in all works choreographed by the director of the ballet company, Richard Wherlock. Since then I have been the successful director of the “Urayasu Ballet Academy” in Tokyo.
