He started his professional dance career at the Hungarian National Ballet and after then, was invited by William Forsythe to join the Frankfurt Ballet. His future engagements led him to work with the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon and the Vienna State Opera under the direction of Gyula Harangozó and his successor, Manuel Legris.
