Charles started training when he was 16 before moving to the Netherlands to gain a bachelor’s degree in dance from Codarts University of Arts in Rotterdam. One performance that has inspired Charles is Ziel/Roth
performed by ICK Dans Amsterdam in collaboration with Amsterdam Andalusisch Orkest
. He was fascinated by the relation between the live music and the dance, and the quality and expression of the dancers. If Charles couldn’t be a dancer, he would like to do a PhD in literature, or become a violinist or teacher. "To connect to my body, I sometimes just simply need to close my eyes do some breathings or shake all my limbs."
