I am originally from Italy, where I started dancing at a very young age,
with my parents being my first teachers.
I trained and competed for many years in Ballroom and Latin,
but decided at the age of 15
to specialise in Latin American, reaching the Italian Championship
Youth Final. At the age of 20, I moved to England to further my dance career.
In 2010 I became British National Under 21 Champion and
was a regular finalist in Under 21 International Championships.
I Started dancing at the age of 9 in my local dance school in South Wales,
it was here that I found my love and passion for dancing.
I initially started medal exams and medallist competitions in Ballroom,
Latin and Sequence dance. After a short while
I found a partner and started competing in open competitions.
At the age of 18 I moved to Surrey, where I studied at
Royal Holloway University, however the main reason for my move was to be
closer to South London, where we have some of the best dance studios
and teachers in the world. With my previous partner
I was Welsh Amateur Latin Champion and Semi-finalists at the
British National Amateur Latin Championships.
Adelmo and Leah In July 2012, after amicably splitting with previous partners,
we decided to have a try out with a mutual teacher who thought we would make a great partnership.
Since then we have been training very hard and have had some great results
including finishing 8th place at the British National Amateur
Latin Championships 2012, being just a couple of marks off the final.
In 2013 we made the final at the British National, after just one year dancing together.
We are both very dedicated people with a passion for dance and a passion for success in our dance career.
We are very focused and continuing to work extremely hard in order to reach our goals together.
