Later, he trained with the Joffrey Ballet Academy at Fort Hamilton High School under Sabrina Jaafar, the French Academy of Ballet under Francois Perron with full scholarship, the Peridance Senior Youth Emsemble, and the Musical Theater College Auditions (MTCA). He has performed for the Brooklyn Nets All Star Dance Team, VSPAC Nutcracker, Joffrey Ballet Academy Nutcracker, National High School Dance Festival, Symphony Space, and Madison Square Garden.

At the Narrows Community Theater, he performed another principal role (Chip) in “On The Town”, and was the dance Captain for “Peter Pan”.
