Sharing of Life Lessons and Dance Lessons... how both are similar and what can we learn from it.
Just a quick intro about myself for those who don't know me.
I'm the Principal and Artistic Director of Rhythm Identity Dance Academy; which is one of Malaysia's top social Latin and partner dance school. I dance, perform, choreography and teach not only in Malaysia but internationally as well....
I started off with Salsa and was the reigning Malaysian Salsa Champion from 2005 till 2009.
Back in 2008 I started building Bachata and was coined as the Malaysian King of Bachata for the work that I do in the scene. I was the first Bachata instructor in Malaysia with a full syllabus of Bachata dance lessons and also the first Bachata instructor in Malaysia to go international.
And late 2009, I ventured into Brazilian Zouk and pioneered this dance scene from zero to becoming one of Asia's main Brazilian Zouk dance scene. I organized the largest Brazilian Zouk Dance Festival in Asia and am currently Asia's No1 Zouk Artist as I perform, teach, social dance, DJ and have performed alongside World Zouk Champions as well as with the top names in the industry.
I have also helped to create many competition champions at the National and also the Asian title levels.
Before I was full force into running my dance school, I was a Speaker, Trainer and Coach; and have worked on many training projects with large corporations and financial institutions here in Malaysia. Now, I am more focused on building the dance scene and combining both my knowledge and experience in growing people and growing dance together.
I hope you will like my page here and follow me as I share more of my passion for Life and Dance and how they intertwine with each other.
Dance is Life.
Life is Dance.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.
How long has it been since you felt power in yourself?
Rhythm Identity Dance Academy has been empowering people since 2006. Creating life winners, champions and great people.
You too can be powerful.
Training with 2X World Zouk Champion Alisson at Zouk SEA Festival 2017... previously undisclosed video footage.
It's rare to get the chance to train with the top names in any industry and I am happy to have had the opportunity to learn from some of the biggest names not only in the Brazilian Zouk scene but also in Bachata and Salsa.
Having the right people to teach and guide you is important if you want to raise yourself to the next level. Do you have anyone to do that for you? If not... time to find one. Or just stay where you are if comfort zone is your thing.
One of my favourite performance ever.
Zouk SEA 2013 with Larissa Thayane; one the the best and top names in Brazilian Zouk. Was truly an honour to be able to perform with her here and this is a highlight of my life which I will never forget.
Believe you can do it and anything is possible.
One of my favourite fusion dance routine performed with Cecilia. It was also our first time ever chosen to be the closing show for an international dance event.
Rhythm Identity Dance Academy went there with a total of 5 performances and a plane full of students. Was truly a fun and memorable event for all of us.
At Rhythm Identity Dance Academy, its not just about dance... it's about having fun and enjoying each other's company while travelling around the world....
And we're always at the forefront of dance innovation, creativity and revolution in Malaysia.

Revising some old dance choreography and performance from as far back as 6 years ago.
Jaxen and Cecilia with their early days routine Dark Angel which represented how zouk dance flavour was like when it was first introduced into Malaysia. Rhythm Identity Dance Academy pioneered Brazilian Zouk dance in Malaysia and we're also responsible for many dance events and revolutions not only in Zouk but also Salsa and Bachata here in Malaysia.
Back in 2012 when Rhythm Identity Dance Academy organized the 2nd Zouk SEA, me and my partner Cecilia had the opportunity to once again learn and perform with the world's best Kadu and Larissa.
We're always working with some of the best and top names in the dance industry and that's what a lot of our students get as well.
And no better place to get it than at Zouk SEA 2018 this year where its happening from Aug 3 to 5 at Port Dickson. Check out www.zouksea.weebly.com for mor...e info.
The first zouk event i organized back in 2011.
Was truly a pleasure and honour for me and my partner Cecilia to be able to train and perform with one of the top zouk instructors and performers in the world, Kadu & Larissa!
This was the start of Zouk SEA events by Rhythm Identity Dance Academy and now in 2018 we're still running the event. Awesome time happening from Aug 3 to 5 at Port Dickson!!...
