Born and resided till his 15th birthday on the beautiful island of Curaçao, mitchell is well known for his passion for music and dance. Throughout his latin dance career he’s enjoyed training with amazing teachers and pioneers such as Melissa Rosado, Eddie Torres, Adolfo Indacochea and many others. While traveling around the world and sharing his passion for latin dance he developed an outmost desire to fuse different styles and techniques of dance.
Dedicating himself to his desire to fuse he took various classes of afro cuban, weekly classes of classical ballet and jazz and a twice a year training trip to NYC to train at the great schools such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater/Broadway Dance Center and Peridance.
Since then he has developed a fun, challenging, musical and very Caribbean rooted fusion with help and inspiration of his mentor: Sekou Mcmiller. Join him on his journey back to where dance was an expression of love and freedom.
