Rodrigo was born in Brazil and has loved dancing since he was a young boy. He started his career as a dance teacher, which led him to dancing professionally. He started to live out his passion in Brazil performing ballroom dancing, and soon after diversified with other dance styles. In 2009 he left Brazil for France in order to enlarge his experience. He then joined several dance companies, including the famous Parisian Cabaret!
