Multiple dance world champion
I was born in Durban on 15 October 1997, but lived most of my life in Johannesburg. As a kid I loved Hip Hop dancing and began to branch out into other styles because ‘they needed more boys’. With the boy:girl ratio working smartly in my favour, it was a no-brainer…
I reached the final of the first season of SA’s Got Talent in 2009 at the age of 12. It was where I discovered that I was more than a dancer, I was a performer. Hip Hop, Contemporary and Jazz styles are where my primary passion lies, but I’m also trained in Ballet (Cecchetti), Showdance, Freestyle, Disco, B-Boy and Latin American.
Through my teens, I was fortunate to be guided by my intuitive Mum, who always made sure I was being challenged and that I had a goal to aim for (I aimed to win at least one international title a year). She also made sure I was trained by South Africa’s best trainers and choreographers. And I was also supported by a number of amazing South African brands, including Biogen. All I had to add was my passion and commitment.
I left South Africa in March 2016 aged 18 and went to London to chase my dream of becoming a world-class triple-threat performer (dancing, acting and singing). I have been fortunate to have performed in The Bodyguard Das Musical in Cologne, Germany, followed by Seebach in Frederecia, Denmark. I’m currently performing in the world premiere of Prince of Egypt Musical in Denmark.
#maKeitBig has been my motto since I was a kid and of course I’ve added #BeYourBest to that. I trust Biogen’s high-quality products to help me achieve the strength, energy, recovery and general health required to be my best all the time.
