After that he started training at Glenda Yee School of Dance where he stayed until the decision to move over to Brent Street Studios where he was given the opportunity to represent Australia in the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Los Angeles, and received gold in each category he entered and overall Junior World Dancer. After WCOPA in 2013 he won the prestigious Australian Dancer of the Year title at the Showcase Australian Dance Championships."
